Yarn, Yarn, Yarn!
At the top are a few of the many gorgeous yarns I've picked up. I'm big on baby silk alpaca (about $2.10-$2.50 per skein, at 183 meters - the wine-red in the middle of the picture above), microfiber (pink, above), and the Peruvian AlpaFina (tweedy dark red, above) which I particularly adore. In Ivanovo I also found a wonderful 50-50 wool/cotton blend (pictured below) for an astoundingly cheap $1.30 per skein! I forget the yardage, but it's quite decent.
