Yesterday I went downtown to the industrial area to get some cotton yarn. The last time I bought yarn it was 1 euro per cotton skein which is a pretty decent deal. This time the price was $1.85 euros which is a little bit more than I like to spend but I bought 3 skiens anyway. Each skein is 85 meters. I have no idea what the name of the skein is but it is made up of the colors red, blue, green, and yellow. I managed to finish a washcloth last night as my husband and I were watching tv.
