Cathy and Rebecca, her daughter, finally finished their tour of Portugal and Spain. You know, I was quite neglected while they wined and dined their way around Iberia. But once Rebecca flew back to the States, I did get one unveiling in Spain…

Cathy discovered a very special place in Utrecht—the Sticks and Cups wolwinkle (yarn shop) and it kind of became our second home in Utrecht.
On Sunday afternoon, Cathy was knitting in the Strowis Hostel garden and a couple, Marja and Jon, were sitting nearby waiting for the café next door to open. Once Cathy found out that Marja knitted, she ran upstairs to fetch me!
The knitters were very enthusiastic about my visit. Janne wrote in my journal, “It was nice to meet you! I envy your freedom and adventure.” Marjolyn used a special silk yarn dyed by Dutch fiber artist, Loret Karman. We really enjoyed the evening.
For our next stop, we were invited to stay with lace shawl knitter and designer, Connie Wolthius. Although we had yet to meet her, Cathy and I were destined to have some very special times together with Connie.
