I live in the town that was built to house the workers from Chernobyl after the accident meant the original town had to be deserted. It was therefore a 'closed' town in Soviet times - so everyone knows everyone else and there was no need for signs! Things are changing, we got our first supermarket in 2005 which has made life here as a non-Russian speaker a whole lot easier.
Now I have some labels showing wool, acrylic etc. I'll be able to get what I need fairly easily I hope.
Oh, I should probably also note that I got all 5 balls of yarn for less than $10 total so I really can't complain too much if one ends up not being as useful as I'd hoped.
Gloves sound waaaay beyond my ability for now - I'm using the dishcloths to practice stitches before trying something bigger.
Nothing is finished yet, so no pictures, or did you mean pictures of the yarn skeins? :thinking:
