I actually found a yarn shop in town today! Very exciting - it was behind a door that I’d never tried before since it had no sign. Luckily my Russian teacher’s mother is a knitter so she told me where it was.
But, this being Ukraine, you don’t get to wander around picking yarns up & feeling them… no, they’re all behind the counter & you have to ask the lady for what you want. Since my attempt at the Russian for ‘wool’ & ‘cotton’ didn’t seem to work very well, I just pointed randomly at a few balls to see what the labels would say. Turns out they’re in Polish anyway :rollseyes:
But, what I got & what I’m thinking of are:
Cotton with Elastane: dishcloths
70% Acrylic, 30% Wool: scarf
72% Wool, 28% PAC (what is PAC?): Booga bag (it’s a very thick yarn)
80% Wool, 20% Polyamide(?): I’m stumped. It’s a very fine yarn
100% Acrylic: Hooded scarf
Does that sound like it would work? Now I have the labels, it’ll be much easier next time. Oh, and I’m not planning to work on everything at once, just trying to get my stash started & figure out what different yarns I can get, and what they’ll work for.
