Re: Egg Picking



Where can I find the best yarn for killie? I'm paying $5 for a 1lb roll or
something like that. I only got 10 mops out of a roll. Do you people make
big mops? I made big ones since I heard killie won't lay eggs near
eachother. Well I guess that was wrong since sometimes I find eggs in
clusters.
