Next Saturday I’m making the long train trip to this event. I’m very tempted to go by car, because I have a new car, but N. has convinced me that we should go by train so we can knit. Knitting trumps driving a new car.
I’m not sure if there will be a lot of knitters that I know going to this event. It’s pretty far away. It’s going to take us 3 hours by train to get there (only a little over 2 hours by car however). Dutch people think that traveling an hour to go somewhere is already a big deal.
The event is held in a “manege” or horse arena. It will be cold. It will be full of people and wool so I hope that we heat the place up with our enthusiasm and woolliness. I’m hoping to find some really nice local yarn (which is a new thing actually) and some interesting sheep breed specific yarns.
If you live in the Netherlands, or northern Germany, or even northern England, make a fun day trip out of this and come along. It’s good to support our local wool!
