In NYC, I visited the usual suspects--Knitty City, Purl Soho and Lion Brand Studio.
From Knitty City, I picked out my first Malabrigo roving. I've read that these rovings spin like a dream. Hopefully I can get enough yarn to make a shawl like these ones--all knitted with handspun yarn.
From Purl Soho, I got yarn for hats. The skein of Purl Soho's Merino worsted weight yarn is for the warm hat that I desperately need. The Cascade Eco Due is for a gift. I am in between Graham or the Super Soft Merino Hat for these hats.
I couldn't leave the store without choosing my first Brooklyn Tweed Shelter yarn! I got two skeins with hopes that I can get a cowl out of them. We shall see.
From the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, I got yarn for a sweater. Below are about 1220 yards of LB Collection Superwash Merino.
We ate yummy food at places like The Grey Dog and Empanada Mama. We walked miles and miles and had a great time. I can't wait to go back. There is something magical about Manhattan!
