Athens Kangaroo

Dear Bag: In Greece last week I managed to find an hour for a yarn store adventure. I had the addresses of six stores in Athens from a ravelry post and it turns out that three were in the same block in the downtown shopping district. The stores mostly had Italian yarn and lots of cotton. When I saw fingering weight yarn with a knitting kangaroo on the label, I had to buy some, even though I wasn't exactly sure about the content, because the info is all in Greek. Really. How do I list this on ravelry? Kangaroo yarn?



And it came in a very cool Kangaroo bag:






which I'll save for you. It was 4.50 euro per 120m skein and I got 6 skeins for some kind of shawl. Any suggestions?

love, mom

Sooo cool!!! I bet someone will recognize the Kangaroo name - it'll be a good test of ravelry :)

I don't know if I'll get a chance to see the Kangaroo yarn before it gets sent off, but I can't wait to see the shawl yarn. Maybe soon? :)

Congrats btw to both of you on your blog! Looking forward to more entries!

I think it may be a company in the U.K. Unfortunately their website was down, but I did try to find it for you.

They were explaining who they were and where they are.
