Again, no post about new crochet things from me (gasp!). I spent the weekend away and didn't take any yarn with me. I know, I know. Crazy lady.
Last Thursday we drove to Amsterdam/The Netherlands. The weekend away in Amsterdam was my birthday present to the boyfriend. The Rijkmuseum was holding an exhibition about the painting from Rembrandt (his later years). As my boyfriend likes the art, going there was part of the present. :)
On Saturday we went to see a local market with lots of organic fruits, veggies and bread. Oh my! I wish we had a market like that over here! Not only did the veggies look so yummy (and ripe), the prices were good too! It can be tough to get ripe fruit and veggies here in Germany which is such a pity. Somehow it seems, Germans prefer unripe things...
I managed to spot some crochet works all over the town! :) Soo nice to see some yarn-y works! The little crochet dolls were sold at the Rijkmuseum shop. I didn't take a photo of the label but they were made somewhere in Asia by local women as part of supporting their family.
Have you been to Amsterdam yet? I am sure I will return at some point. It really isn't far away from Dortmund. Only about 2 1/2 hours (if there is no traffic jam like last Thursday)!
