Woo hoo! Charles and I took a day trip to Amsterdam today. Actually, it was sort of a last-minute decision a little late in the game and involving the Dutch train system, so it was really more of an afternoon/evening trip to Amsterdam.
But it was good. It involved:
- One trip to Caulils on Harleemerstraat for 3 kilos of the good stuff: Martelli pasta!
- One trip to De Afstap on Oude Leliestraat Centrum for eight skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed. Two beautiful shades of purple! (I'm making progress with Big Bad Baby Blanket #1 and thought I'd stock up for #2. It'll take me a while yet to finish both, and someone's bound to get pregnant in the meantime, right?)
- A cappuccino and a beer at Blond & Blont on Hartenstraat
- Sushi dinner at Kagetsu on Hartenstraat. Mmmm ... unagi roll, California roll, futo maki roll and nabeyaki udon! Nummers!
