This past weekend I went to New York City with work for the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. One of the first things I did when I found out I would be in NYC was to see how far the Lion Brand Yarn Studio was to our hotel. Turns out it was just a little over a mile away! So, I drug my coworker along with me to my one "tourist" request of the weekend. The store surprised me a little in being smaller than I expected, but it was so welcoming and fun to be in. The creativity it shows and inspires through its interior design and displays is something I think many of the lys around here lack. I didn't buy any yarn, but I did check out first hand their LB Collection Wool Stainless Steel yarn. I wouldn't make anything for apparel out of it, but I think it can make some amazing home decor items. I did buy a crochet hook organizer, a retractable tape measure, and some gifts for family and friends.
Definitely one of the highlights to my trip, and will visit again if I am ever back in the big apple.
