Knit and Crochet Day

This weekend was one of the larger Knit and Crochet weekends in Holland, held in a fairly unique location in Amersfoort, an old city in the middle of the country. The venue was a storage place for old train carriages, which provided a really interesting background for all the amazing yarns and fibers on sale there.  It was a pretty busy day but I did take a wander  around the many stalls and, rather than rave on about everything I saw there , I am going to take you on a bit of a photo tour so you can see it too.

Starting with some yarn eye candy, I loved these colours!breidag (1)breidag (3) Some Crochet circles

I have the idea that no matter where you are in the world, if you attend your local yarn fairs, this will all be a familiar scene, full of colour, pretty fluff and fibers, and lots of chatting and meeting old friends and new. Can only be great!
