more yarn than you can imagine


before i went to argentina, i did some googling on the web to try to figure out where to buy yarn in buenos aires. when trying to find actual yarn store sites wasn't turning up much, i decided to try to find a friendly porteņo who knits. and man, did i get lucky! i found Vik who blogs at like-grandma.blogspot.com. Vik so far exceeded my imagination of how fun hanging out with a stranger from across the globe could be.

we spent an awesome saturday morning having breakfast, yarn shopping, and lunching. she laughed at me when my jaw hung open at the sheer volume of yarn in some of these shops. seriously, they sell wool by the kilo there.

i've posted some photos from the day on flickr. the first of the group starts here.

the internet sure has made the world such a small place, hasn't it? pretty damn cool.

Hi Donna,

I'm off to Buenos Aires tomorrow and I'm dying for some yarn shop recommendations. If you have a chance, please send some lalong. I'd be extremely grateful!
