I will be in NYC for a few days . . . any LYS that New Yorkers can recomment to visit?
Thanks . .
When I was in the Big City last October, I found I was near a great store on Amsterdam and 108th. (The name slips me - but I found it mentioned on a NY blog.) Based on the photos, it is fantastic. Heard good things about Knitty City, too. Hope you have fun hunting the Elusive Stash. It was a good thing I never made it to either of them; I would've needed another suitcase to get home. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
My favorite LYS in NYC is Seaport Yarn on lower Broadway, not far from the WTC and next door to Century 21 Department Store. They have a really large selection and lots of friendly advice.
I was their yesterday and picked up some hanks of Peruvian yarn!
Purl in Soho is cute --
I thought the selection at Seaport Yarns (close to Wall St...?) was rather extensive --
But I think the only place that I actually bought yarn from was Gotta Knit! -- close to the Empire State Building, I think --
Have fun, and don't spend too much! :)

I also frequent School Products, they have some interesting yarns and the full line of Karabella yarns.
