For the last few days, Mr. Left and I, and some friends from the states (Steve and Jay), have been in Amsterdam. We went by car. On the autobahn. And I drove.

I liked it. Scary thing was I was passing people in the left lane a lot. I was one of those people. While driving is a lot less stressful than being a passenger, I was still happy to give up the driving and continue on in the backseat with my knitting.

Finished Mr. Left’s socks, but can’t post a picture until I give them to him. I also made some progress on the minimalist sweater.

But the most important yarn note of this adventure was that I went to de Afstap, which is a place I remember stumbling onto during one of my earlier trips there (thanks to Knitting Ajour for recommending it to me!).

There I was able to drool for an hour over everything Rowan and eventually drop 50 Euro on some gorgeous Rowan Felted Tweed for a Tangled Yoke Cardigan by Eunny Jang I want to knit.

Oh yeah, and we went to the Red Light District, and my favorite chinese restaurant that has never done me wrong (the boys agreed).
