My favorites are Holland, Amsterdam, and Paris; the colors are either nice bright thick stripes for countries or more subtle thin stripes for cities. The yarn comes in 100 gram/420 meter balls for 6.95 Euros, or a little less than $9US (as of today’s post).
I don’t follow soccer (beautiful game? rly?) — I like knowing about sports culture more than actual sports. Example: at a past World Cup some Netherlands fans had to leave their pants outside the stadium because they had a logo that was not the logo of an official sponsor. (I hope the fans wore boxers. Clean boxers. Without holes.) So: fans crazy enough to watch a game in their nunkies, and sponsors rapacious enough to make them do it. Awesome!
