K is for

Many months ago, I abandoned the 2009 ABC Along. I see that the group is up to "Q" and I'm still stuck in "K."

I now hope to catch up.

My ABC theme for the year was focused on NYS /NYC things. And so my K is something only found in NYC.



It doesn't take a psychic to know that my K would be for the best yarn store in NYC--K is for Knitty City!

Wonderful, helpful, friendly staff. A comfortable space. The terrific location (a few blocks from my apartment). Interesting classes. The knitting table where anybody can just drop in and knit for a while. Books and magazines. Needles and notions. And yarn. Oh, yes, the yarn!

Take a peek:





Is it any wonder that yarn just seems to follow me home from there?!

Many thanks to Pearl for providing such a lovely store.

Wow! That IS a lot of yarn. Looks like a terrific LYS. I can't imagine how nice it must be to have such a great yarn shop within walking distance. I always love your NYC ABCs.

That looks like an amazing LYS. I'll keep it on my list when the hubby and I finally get our trip to NYC planned.

Hmm... according to the sign you can get psychic readings as you knit maybe?? :)

I never finished my ABC Along last year. I got stuck. I was so embarrassed but I don't think any one really noticed I opted out.
