I have a friend who’s on temporary attachment in Seoul. I’ve been watching her post pictures in her Facebook of her shopping expeditions for friends back home. One of it was a picture of a shop selling knitwear and I immediately thought of asking her to scout some yarns for me.
I was apprehensive whether I can get a non-knitter to shop for the right yarn for me. But she did an excellent job at it. I didn’t even know how to begin telling her what yarn to get. She admits that she only knows Minlon yarn. So, she went scouting for a yarn shop and found several and took photos, uploaded them in her FB and tagged me to them. I told her what colours I want, what content of yarn and what size, telling her to check the yarn band for the information. And very importantly, my budget :). The second time around, she got these for me and I’m thrilled.
Can’t wait for her to come back to home ground to get these beauties. Now, that I’ve made a knitted bodice for Arwen, I know I can use these for some more knitted bodice for dresses.
Thank you Mariana!
