Yarn Frenzy

But speaking of Moscow yarn stores. I've found quite a few more than I did on my last trip, and Ivanovo isn't a bad place for yarn shopping either, by any means. So the stash has grown considerably, sigh. The main Russian brand, Semyonovskaia, makes this one yarn in a super-thin feather weight, 100% wool, in a huge variety of colors. So I've begun attempting a pair of gloves using as many colors as possible, cut to varying lengths and stranded together until they come to something like sock weight. I got the idea from a magazine pattern, though I"m afraid I've forgotten which. Unfortunately, cutting all the lengths of course takes forever....
