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 ~
