Whenever I am in a new city I always try to hunt down the local yarn stores. I love seeing what is different and new and also try and pick up some special yarns that I wouldn't be able to get back home.

I had been googling 'Hong Kong Yarn stores' for a little bit and was still having trouble finding what I needed. And then it happened. I spied the words 'wool' from our Hotel! OMG, there was a yarn store less than 5 minutes away! The store Cheer Wool is small but has a big variety of yarns and craft supplies. They had amazing Japanese knitting patterns that I was drooling over but decided that they would be too difficult to decipher when knitting.
Through all the masses of yarn, I spied this super fine and super bright orange mohair. It is about a 2 ply but the colour is amazing! I purchased some of this along with a matching, bulkier yarn to knit together. I'm thinking of a super bright orange fuzzy cowl. Very muppet like!
I also got these tiny Hello Kitty buttons to add to a shirt or dress. They seem so perfect in their packaging. I also picked up a length of Hello Kitty quilted fabric to make a knitting bag from. Though it would also make a wild pair of oven mitts too...
A big thank you to Cheer Wool for their wonderful supply and very helpful staff!
