The Yarn Crawl

Katy organized a yarn crawl of several stores in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. I’m so glad that she did this because I probably would never seek out yarn stores in Brooklyn on my own. We started out at Purl Soho, where Jolene was very nice to open up an hour early for us. While there we met Teva Durham, author of Loop-d-Loop. And of course everyone forgot to bring their copy for her to sign it. Yarnivore was our last stop. We were all very intrigued by the name so we HAD to go there. The owner is super nice but her selection was super small. That was a big let down. A very good thing, though, is that I have found a new favorite LYS in Downtown Yarns.
