I bought some cotton yarn in Denmark. Well, not just 'some'. 30+ skeins. Is that excessive? I'm sure it wasn't because of the yarn we had to book an extra suitcase going home. Nope, nuh uh.
But you know, there's no yarn shop around here and buying yarn online is a bit... you don't know exactly what you're getting when you can't touch it. Right?
And then.. you can sort your yarn according to colour. Which is fun and pleasing to the eye.
