Nij Bethanië1983 by Jopie Huisman

"On seeing these through love and sorrow-worn woolen underpants, I was fascinated by the laundry label "Nij Bethany 33."
Later, wandering through the countryside I saw in a village not far from here a nursing home named Nij Bethany. Then everything became clear. Nij Bethany 33, a familiar relic of security and warmth." [Rough translation of text at http://natuurmijnpassie.skynetblogs.be/tag/jopie%20huisman]

"Yes. I counted the stitches. I did not want to cheat the woman." www.bedrijfsdecoratie
