Fun with yarn
If you have time, take a trip to Downtown Yarns, 45 Avenue A (between 3rd and 4th Street). The space is warm and cozy and invites you to feel like an unexpected old friend. When you walk in, you're hit with the romantic smell of possibilities. The options are endless. Booties for your nephew; mittens and a hat for your sister; a rustic, smooth blanket for your next fireplace rendezvous. All this in roughly 300 square feet! The creamy, soft colors of the yarn whisper "home" in an ever so enticing pitch. Whether you're new to crocheting or knitting or are looking for a fresh bin to pick from, browsing through is an unlikely option. As the strands of colorful yarn embrace and spill onto one another, your shopping cart suddenly bursts with the hope of a corduroy clad Fall, perfectly outfitted with a sweater and matching scarf.
