  1. Beautiful! I’ll have to share this site with my mom. She was just visiting me in Dubai, and we went all over looking for yarn and didn’t have any luck. She always buys yarn on vacations 🙂

    • I’m the same way. I love finding yarn stores. Course the sweetie isn’t so fond but we find a tool store for him so he feels better. 😉 Thanks for visiting and passing it on to your mom!

I love comments. Let's Talk!
