King's Day

 For King's Day I made this cake  The outside is orange, after the name of the king Van Oranje, which means 'from orange'.  The inside is red, white and blue, after the Dutch flag.

  For one of my friends, who had a little baby girl all on her own, I made this soft baby blanket. It's actually a very simple pattern in which knit and purl stitches are alternated.   Yarn: Royal Rust by Zeeman ~*~ Smokey Kitty was featured by Pieced Pastimes ,  Creative Jewish Mom  and Moogly !!

Travels: Kootwijk, The Netherlands

Image
  Last weekend we went for a short trip to the Veluwe, a region in The Netherlands where we normally go to in the summer, but especially my husband wanted to see something different than the walls of our own house after almost two years of working from home, so we decided to go in the winter.  Here's an impression of our trip.  We also brought our little friend James.  Because it was the weekend for Valentine's Day I made chocolate hearts for my daughter and made a charcuterie board. We hiked a short trail over the sand-drift near the village of Kootwijk.  Went for a lunch in Wychen And as is becoming a sort of family tradition: visited a castle. It was just a short weekend, but it was great to be in another environment.
