It's been forever since I updated here. The last time I really posted here was my pre-NYC trip. I really ought to post a few things about the trip, even though it's super late.
I did a little bit of knitting while I was on my trip. I worked on my Aquaphobia socks on the subway and I knocked out some USA themed hexipuffs.
We were staying in Brooklyn and on day 2 of our trip, we decided to go for a really, REALLY long walk to check out some local yarn stores.
We actually got around to checking out two of them.
The first store we stopped by was called Stitch Therapy and the lady who ran the shop, Maxcine, was lovely, pleasant, and very knowledgeable. Her store is small but not overly so. There is plenty of space to sit and knit. I picked up 4 oz of angora rabbit from her store for a really reasonable price. Here are some pictures!
After Stitch Therapy we found our way to Argyle Yarns which was about a thirty minute walk. It was a beautiful day and we were glad to make the trek. The display was beautiful, but I'm sad to say that the staff seemed a little cold to me.
I purchased some short birch DPNs to work on hexipuffs but they were the wrong size as it turned out. When I went for an exchange, I was refused, but I needed the DPNs so I gave in and bought them, anyway.
Here are some pictures of her store. It was spacious and airy.
A few days after visiting initially, I stopped by Stitch Therapy again to knit with Maxcine for awhile and talk about the local sights. We decided after that to hit the Brooklyn Bridge.
Anyway, this isn't a huge post about the whole trip to NYC... just the knitting portion! SO, shoutout to two stores with great selection. I would highly recommend anyone going to Brooklyn to stop by Stitch Therapy and hang out with Maxcine. :)
