When 20 years ago I was in Australia I couldn’t stop buying yarn there. It was so soft, tempting and beautiful that I ended up with almost two suitcases full of yarn. I was very surprised that I was not stopped at customs with it. Maybe the customs officers were knitters? I used quite a bit of it, but to this day it makes a substantial part of my stash.
