I went to the Noordermarkt this morning with my friend Danny.
We needed some linen and wool for new Viking-outfits, for both Kees and me.
When I got home this afternoon, Donna was at the front door to great me as always but... no Ayla. So I was scared to death her heart had given out. The not-so-nice-neighbourhood-kids have been harrassing the surroundings of my home with fireworks since 8 AM this morning and Ayla has a heart-disease so I feared the worst.
But when I walked in my bathroom there she was:
All the way up in my towel-basket. She's on my lap now and purring, I believe all is going to be ok, as always. I'm going out tonight. That's new for both my cats and me, as I'm scared to death of fireworks. But I want to go to Mulligans and celebrate the new year with my friends.
Like I said, Donna is not impressed by all the loud noices and was opening my bags for me. Remember last time when D. and me went fabric-shopping? Danny found an awesome sweater for only 10 euro's. I found one for me today! And Donna likes it too :D
We also found fabric. For Kees a natural and dark brown (it looks a bit grey, but it's a beautyful dark brown) for a new pair of viking pants and a top:
For me the same dark brown and and a lighter natural linen for an over- and underdress and a nice brown woolen fishbone pattern for a coat (on the left)
As for the knitting:
The hoody is going slowly but steadily, My second mirror sock is not going to be finished in this year, but will be soon. Also The Felted Foursome, which is hibernating a bit at the moment and the Kaffe Fasset duo will be done somewhere in January. My friend Ingrid is expecting a baby girl in March and the poor kid is going to get a pink-Disney-princess babyroom.. I will knit her a "tough cookie" outfit.. with maybe a skully or something *lol*
Well... that's all folks!
Have a safe and happy party tonight and I wish you all a Book- & Fibertastic 2008!
