Crochet in Delft, the Netherlands and a great local yarn shop!

 This is a ''NEW WAVE'' scarf or possibly cowl that I decided to make to wear with a new grey great coat I acquired for this winter season and it seemd a nice easy prtable project for our weekend away .
It also combines a few ''leftovers'' from other projects and two Debbie Bliss RIVA balls that I hadn;t decided what to do with yet.
Then on the Friday evening after dinner when we were enjoying a stroll around Delft I came across THIS lovely yarn shop! I took some window shots there and then:
 Oh the colours and the yarns, how wonderful! And a crochet shawl on display!
 A whole line of super cute felted slippers AND a crocheted pouffe!
 Such fun slippers....
 And then I spied lovely NATURA colours as well as Lana Grossa Elastico which I purchased in Delft many many years ago in a different shop which alas has now gone.
 And the inevitable picture of Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring.
And you can;t see it in the photo but the plastic basket in the rear is covered in lovely crochet too.

This is the window on the other side of the door: a workshop in Tapestry Crochet , some diaries and a crocheted pouffe or seat cushion: POSSIBLY even fluorescent?

 And two more shawls: one crocheted- the black and multicolour one and one knitted lace.
So I had to come back, right? In daylight , when it was OPEN?
