Markt van wol enzo

I'm very busy to get ready for the craft fair I'm organising with Alet from Textielwerk.
I translated all Noro patterns into Dutch, made a small booklet with the used technics and bought some yarn. Yeah for knitting kits! Here's a taste of what I'm going to sell at Ouderkerk. De knitting kits will cost 27.50 euros. Unfortunatly the yarn I ordered at Easy knits isn't in yet due to family issues (unfortunatly for the family not the order) But he! Then you all have something to look forward to in Hoorn on June 30th. The new Dutch site will go live on monday, not yet with shoppingcart but that'll come soon

Ik heb het erg druk voor de Markt van wol enzo die ik samen met Alet van Textielwerk organiseer. (Hier is de link van die website, zodat je kunt zien wie er oa komen). Ik heb eindelijk alle Noro patronen vertaald naar het Nederlands, een fotoboekje gemaakt met de speciale technieken die gebruikt worden en garen ingekocht. Jaha, breipakketten.
Hier voor jullie alvast een voorproefje van wat ik meeneem naar Ouderkerk
De breipakketten gaan 27,50 euro kosten. jammer is dat ik het garen Easyknits nog niet binnen heb waar ik Tintaglia van heb gemaakt. Maar dat zien jullie dan wel 30 juni in Hoorn. Ja iedereen bleef maar vragen naar Nederlands dat ik nu gezwicht ben onder de druk :) Als alles goed gaat is de nieuwe Nederlandstalige website maandag live te bewonderen op http://www.breipakket.nl/ dan werkt het winkelwagentje nog niet, maar kun je wel al zien wat er verkocht gaat worden en natuurlijk kun je wel al kopen via overschrijving. :)
