The 3rd Annual NYC Yarn Crawl is approaching - September 30, October 1 and 2nd.
It is FREE, and no purchases are necessary in the dozen-or-so shops that are participating. Every crawler receives a free raffle ticket, and prize baskets of gorgeous yarn are valued at $350 or more! You can read more about it here: http://www.nycyarncrawl.com/home
Rather than crawl, yesterday my mom and I sprinted to SOHO for a quick trip to our beloved yarn and fabric shop, Purl. She handed the garage attendant the key and said, "We'll be back in an hour!" I picked up one skein of Knit Collage's Pixie Dust in Antique Garnet for a cowl. Pixie Dust is handspun of wool, mohair and camel fibers. I also took home two skeins of Anzula's For Better or Worsted. FBoWorsted is a superwash wool, cashmere blend with a touch of nylon for a beautiful sheen. I picked hand-dyed color Terra Cotta for a baby sweater. LOVE.
