Knitting weeks!

Again I have been absent, but with a good reason. Last weekends I have been  knitting at the Fries Museum and at the Breidagen.
The Fries Museum has an exposition about Knitting. And they asked for knitters to come and knit and, if possible, learn (young) visitors how to knit. Great fun!
A week later I went to Zwolle, to visit the Brei-en Haakdag. Two days with friends, wool, knitting and crochet. I was asked to coordinate a children's corner, where children could learn how to knit or crochet. Quite some young girls came to learn. Great fun too! (I am the woman wearing the salmon coloured shirt)
Even a man wanted to learn how to knit. Do you recognize my Sari Marais?
In between I finished my Dig Deep. A shawl, designed by Stephen West.
And a  quick knit, two Bunchoten mitaines. Written from an old pattern, I did this testknit for Evelien Verkerk.

Meid wat ben je weer verschrikkelijk druk geweest! Maar wel met hele leuke dingen. :)

Je Sari Marais staat je schitterend en van de Big Deep denk ik dat je hem heel vaak zult gaan dragen. Helemaal nu het kouder wordt, net als die mitaines. :)

You are becoming very famous - as a teacher and a maker of beautiful shawls and mittens (or fingerless mittens) wow. I can say I knew her before she was famous. And wonderful that you have the patience to teach young people. Good for you! I am having photo troubles, so am very behind in my blog writing. Sorry.

Wat leuk om je verhaal te lezen. Ik wist niet dat jij ook een blogger was :-). Ik heb me maar meten aangemeld als volger. Het is altijd leuk om wat meer te lezen dan alleen de korte opmerkingen en foto's op fb te zien!
Groetjes, Nelleke
