I recently went to NYC and was very excited to visit the SoHo area.
As well as good eats & shopping, I knew that Purl SoHo resided there… a knitting store that I’ve been following for a while now because of their non-extremely-dated patterns on their blog the Purl Bee.
I made the pilgrimage to 459 Broome St to visit their store, and it was absolute knitter’s heaven in there. The store was mostly knitting related, but also carried a lot of sewing notions, including my very favourite… Liberty of London fabrics. Needless to say, I spent at least an hour in there and came out with quite the inventory and was surprised to say it was my most expensive excursion in New York.
I bought 6 skeins of Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima, an 100% cotton yarn, with the idea of making an open knit summer sweater.
