Oh, so fine – From their real screen door to their hand written patterns this place is like a trip out of the city. Cozy, friendly. No fuss. There is plenty of room to wander around in, not cramped as some yarn stores tend to be. They carry an extensive selection of basic (Lamb's Pride) to luxury yarns (Several brands of cashmere). On display are sample items - from sophisticated lace mitts, through appealing and funky hats and scarves down to some of the cutest kids sweaters I've seen. I don't know any children but I wanted to knit some of these. Shoot. So I bought sock yarn.
Editorial Review – This East Village shop features knitting classes and workshops plus a a wide variety of knitting needles, yarns and magazines.
