Another hot spot for the city's knitters, this Alphabet City shop offers classes, patterns, and yarns so pretty you'll be knitting presents for decades to come.

Oh, so fine – From their real screen door to their hand written patterns this place is like a trip out of the city. Cozy, friendly. No fuss. There is plenty of room to wander around in, not cramped as some yarn stores tend to be. They carry an extensive selection of basic (Lamb's Pride) to luxury yarns (Several brands of cashmere). On display are sample items - from sophisticated lace mitts, through appealing and funky hats and scarves down to some of the cutest kids sweaters I've seen. I don't know any children but I wanted to knit some of these. Shoot. So I bought sock yarn.
