Yarn Shopping in Syros

As all fellow knitters know...
no matter where we travel
we can never pass by a yarn shop.

Walking down the streets of Syros, one of the many
beautiful islands in Greece,
I stumbled upon a yarn shop!
My heart fluttered and hands began to sweat.
I called to my husband and traveling companions
and told them to go ahead. 
This could take a while.

The shop owner spoke not a word of English
and my Greek was limited to
good day and thank you.
Wanting a yarn made in Greece was my priority.
After much trial and error and laughing
(the shop owner had a good sense of humor)
she got my message and found some lovely cotton yarn
Made In Greece!

I'm not sure what I will make with this
soft as silk cotton yarn
in variegated shades of blues, greens, and pinks.
All ideas are welcome!
Until Next Time ~


  1. Of course you couldn't pass up a yarn opportunity. I always look for local made yarns wherever I go. Have fun with it!

  2. Vacation yarn is the best! How fun that you found this great yarn.
    Your trip has been fantastic.

  3. How about nice airy scarf, or a airy cowl. Maybe a basket. A purse?

    1. Oh my! Such wonderful ideas... think I should have bought more yarn!


I would love to hear from you!
