Vacation Days Continue

Mom and friends are enjoying their visit to NL.  Yesterday we had a nice day visiting the Rijksmuseum, then Rembrandtplein

then we were lucky enough to be allowed into the Tuschinski and to have a look around in the main theater.  It’s really beautiful and I’m glad Mom got the chance to see it.  The people working there were very nice and took the time to talk to us and let us wander around.

We had parked at the Stadsdeel/Opera House (Stopera) and walked over the bridge, over the Amstel River:

Last, but certainly not least, we walked over to Puccini – the best chocolate in the WORLD.  It’s expensive, but worth every penny.  We bought lots.

On the knitting front, I’ve finished the back of the Sunrise Circle Jacket (Ravelry link) and have started on the first sleeve.  So far so good!  Here are a couple of photos.  I’m really happy how this substitute yarn is looking.  I was afraid it would clearly show the increases or decreases, but the stitches all flow nicely and there aren’t any gaps or strange holes at all.
