I had the chance to sleep in the most famous hotel of The Netherlands, Hotel Krasnapolsky on the Dam in Amsterdam. Right in front of the Royal Palace! I felt like a VIP, having breakfast at the 'Wintertuin'.
You might think I didn't have time to knit, but I did! In fact I have a few finishes to show. First I did a testknit, Quantum Leap Cowl by Heather Anderson. Pattern is on Ravelry.
Second I finished my shawl Something Inside So Strong. Pattern is Fortresse by Monique Boonstra, named after the shield of Zwartsluis. It was a pleasure to knit. I have a very unique one, because I bought the printed pattern some years ago on a fair. And after that there was given an errat, but I never noticed that. So when I started to knit, I just pulled out my yarn and pattern and started. And, given the pattern, I read the charts from left to right. I wondered, because most of the time you read it from right to left. And that is exactly what the errata is about ....
And in between a friens asked me to knit some Zazies for her. She supplied the yarn and I knitted. I started last Thursday and finished them this morning. And already send them to her. I really am quite happy with what I accomplished this month!
