There is a lovely little yarn shop in the Balid, across the street from Hasham's restaurant. I finally made a purchase.
I picked up some of this fuzzy stuff, and spent just over 1JD, or about 1.50 USD total. When I got the yarn back to my room, I realized that it smells like the Balid: diesel and cigarettes, the scent of downtown Amman. The yarn is beautiful.
