New Yarn Shop in Town!

(klik hier NEDERLANDS)

I heard a new yarn shop opened in my hometown Amsterdam, so I went
with my friend Karin to check it out. When we walked up to the store
I spotted my Candy Scarf design in the window! What a nice surprise
that was.


The shop is called Hooks and Yarn and is run by 2 lovely ladies
Sandra and Danielle, they are very welcoming as soon as you
walk in to the store. The store is pretty big and I love the way
they display the yarn!
Here you can see the brands they sell.


They also do workshops and on saturday morning you can go
and just hang out there with your crochet or knitting WIP, for
a nice chat.
So when you are in Amsterdam, you should definitely stop by
and visit this beautiful shop! The adress is Balboastraat 24 in
Amsterdam. And check out their Facebook and Website!

Sandra and Danielle spoiled me with this ball of wonderful
yarn! It's a mix of 50% wool and 50% silk, it's so shiny and
soft! You all know it is going to be a challenge for me to make
something with only one color, but I do have an idea already!

Yarn 2 bookazine

Did you see the new Yarn Bookazine yet?
It's full of beautiful projects!
You can purchase a copy here at Wool Warehouse (they ship worldwide!)

I made a flower shawl for it, with the wonderful little 25 gram Catona balls, also available at Wool Warehouse and at Deramores.
