Sometimes I write blog posts so quickly, as a kind of brain dump, that I forget to write something really important! Like yesterday for example. I wanted to say that the best part of the Craftymarkt was the people! We met up with Andy, Malia & Dagmar, and Hinke at Gary’s on the Kinkerstraat. It was busy and humming in there. I just love it when you find some place that feels totally comfortable, where the food is good, the service is good, and the people are great. With all the English being spoken I felt like I was in San Francisco or Chicago or something. It was very gezellig.
Then we made our way to the market (everyone on bikes except DB and I who sadly no longer have bikes in Amsterdam; we took the tram). There we also met up with basak (for you non-Ravelers, sorry about the Ravelry links). We also saw our friend Gretske, who had a stall selling crocheted kids ponchos and stuffed Christmas decorations.
So, on a cold and grey winter day, we laughed a lot and enjoyed each other’s company. DB got to meet the knitting crowd and also found them to be fun and friendly, although he did zone out quickly when we started talking stitches and yarn.
So, that’s what I meant to say yesterday, but forgot.
