I'm going to Santiago at the end of the month and have been writing down street/shop names from your post. I'm really looking forward to visiting. Can you tell me the name of the shop where you purchased your lovely needles?

I will write more about my adventure and yarn but for now here are a few pictures. This is a typical shop ... all the yarn is behind a counter and you have to ask to see it ! Not an easy thing when you don't speak Spanish.
I bought the needles in a woodworking shop and the shopkeeper asked if I wanted him to write my name on them ... how cool is that ?
