The StoreNews

Have You Marked Your Calendar Yet?? 


We are so very excited to be joining forces with the ladies from The Plucky Knitter for a trunk show! The yarns are being chosen and dyed as we speak and the Ravelry pages are buzzing. This is going to be an amazing event that you won't want to miss. 
Here are the details:
-Getting to the store is easier than ever! The Q Train has a stop at 96th Street and 2nd Ave so all you have to do is head south to 92nd St and you'll find us right on the southwest corner! The building is brick with very tall brick pillars. The exact address is 1763 2nd Ave.
If you're driving into the city, parking can be limited on the street but there are two parking garages on 92nd Street between 2nd and 3rd Ave.
- The show starts when the doors open at 11am and ends when the doors close at 5pm on Saturday, May 13th. Please be courteous of our closing time as we will have lots of clean-up to do when the show is over.
-Need a snack or lunch? We've got plenty of options! Directly across 2nd Ave. is a delicious pizza place called Delizia and there's a Dunkin Donuts right next to it. On the way from the subway there is a Starbucks and down 2nd Ave there are many options including Mexican, Japanese, and a few Diners.
We will also have some nosh and refreshments in store so we ask that you not bring outside food or beverages into the store. Yarn and stains are not friends.
-Unfortunately we will not be able to offer table help during this very busy day for knitting or needlepoint. We encourage you to come back on Sunday for any help you might need.
-We will not be winding yarn but you are more than welcome to bring it back another day and we would be happy to wind it for you then.
-We will not be giving punches for Plucky Yarn purchases and a full punch card cannot be used on a Plucky Yarn purchase.
 
If you have any questions feel free to call us at the store at (212) 360-7266. 
We hope to see you the 13th!

New Sample!

We have a new yarn from Feza Yarns so of course we had to make a fabulous sample for it!
 
 
This shawl is called Close To You and it's a free Raverly pattern! It takes 1 skein of Uneek and a size US6 needle, although I feel like you could use a US7 instead if you wanted it to be a little bigger. Uneek is a self striping, machine washable yarn so it's great for a shawl like this as well as socks!
 
Stop by the store to get some of this fantastic yarn for your next project!
