Det er jo 5 dages strikketid, hvad jeg ikke siger nej til!, og med en urokkelig tro på mine egne turbo-strikkeevner ville det jo være fælt at tage for lidt med, ikke?
Det her skulle holde mig beskæftiget, tænker jeg.
These past weeks have been kind of busy, so it was really nice having to concentrate on what yarn to pick for a conference!
It is 5 days of knitting, which I love!, and with a never failing trust in my own turbo-knitting abilities, it would be really horrible to bring too little, right?
I guess this will hold me occupied.
The first morning offered me the prettiest bowl of oatmeal I ever had! It actually tasted really nice with the fresh fruit and poppy seeds.
Der var en 1½ times kø ude foran museet, men det var køen værd. Jeg så reol-døren og var oppe ad de stejle trapper til de få, små rum, hvor ialt 8 mennesker gemte sig i 2 år. Tænk, så lidt plads!
Helt klart et museum der er værd at se.
Since I'm visiting Amsterdam for the first time, and since I discovered that I had almost a whole day without programme, I had to go see Anne Franks house. Of course I read the diary, like so many others, but it can be really hard imagining the reality in a hidden life.
There was a line outside the museum that took 90 minutes, but it was worth it. I saw the bookcase door and climbed the steep stairs to the few, tiny rooms where 8 people were hidden for 2 years. Imagine so little space!
Definitely a museum worh visiting.
I often wondered why all photos from Amsterdam contains water. Now I know why. Because the water is everywhere! All the pretty canals with the house-boats and the sweet little streets next to the water. Everything is so beautiful and cozy. (If you keep an eye on the bikes and avoid being run down!)
I also found a very nice yarn shop. I understand that I HAVE to visit another one (owned partly by Stephen West), but this one was quite good, too. I dug out some Dutch yarn and bought some rather nerdy books. So lovely!
