I stopped into this shop on my last trip to NYC. I wasn't sure what to expect, so I wasn't impressed nor disappointed! The shop is a very small one-room shop. I was surprised at the selection of yarn and books. I found some really cute Artful Yarn that I hadn't seen before. I was expecting it to be outrageously expensive and was surprised enough that I bought an extra skein!

I didn't really want a lot of attention, because I hate when I go into a small boutique and I don't buy anything and the sales person gives you that look! But they ladies were very friendly, they were helping others on their projects, and looking up patterns! There was a lot going on in that little place!

I would go again!

This is an extremely strange yarn store. I went in there intending to buy sock needles, and to maybe pick up some yarn if I saw anything I liked. I didn't. They acted nice enough when I told them I was only looking for needles, but when they didn't have what I was looking for, they seemed completely unconcerned and unhelpful. When I left, I tried to say goodbye, and they completely ignored me. Not friendly at all!

Also, while I was there, a new knitter was trying to buy some yarn for her first project. The owners told her what to make, and gave her homework to make a gauge swatch so they could write her a personalized pattern. I think this is a cool idea, but at the same time, really weird how pushy they were about it, as if she couldn't possibly learn how to knit on her own without their guidance.

There is a great selection of yarn and the owner was VERY nice and friendly helping me select yarn and pair it nicely. I would definately return to this store the next time I am in NY.

SO RUDE! Lady was perfectly nice until I said I had a budget and didn't want wool (we're vegans AND allergic) -- then she acted cold & snobby. What a joke! Their stock is very limited, very expensive and not even beautiful. I'd never go there again.

There are nicer yarn stores in this city and in this neighborhood. (Who sells a beginner mercerized cotton when she TELLs them she's making a washcloth?)
