I managed to fit in another yarn store, after a bit of forward planning with the Dutch Knitters at the I Knit day in September. Ribbels is located in the centre of the city, amongst lots of interesting side streets (luckily for me, so Mr Josiekitten could wander while I browsed!) The shop is incredible - all the yarn is arranged by colour, so the impact is tremendous when you first go in. However, I didn't find it very helpful for quick browsing. I bought some Lang Mille Colori yarn (another scarf beckoning!), but would have needed a lot longer there to really get to grips with all the yarn! Mr Josiekitten is extremely tolerant of my woolly obsessions, but even he has his limits!!!
We wandered round another market and ate freshly made stroopwafels (YUM!), and also visited the Hortus Botanicus there, wandering around the beautiful gardens in the afternoon sunshine.
We went out to dinner at one of our favourite restaurants, Seasons, and had a delicious meal. I had a Dutch speciality called Stampot - potatoes and leeks with smoked sausage. It was very tasty, and definitely something to try and make back home.
We had a great weekend. Can't wait to go back again next year!
