Yarn Store Visit: The Yarn Company

I've been back a whole week now from NYC and my head is still buzzing from all the wonderful sights I saw. One thing I managed to do was to check out a yarn store that was only 5 blocks from our hotel: The Yarn Company.

It's up on the second floor and has some beautiful light:
Rows and rows of yummy yarn!
 They also sell roving, needles and other supplies.
The Yarn Company also offers classes - I would have loved to sit in a class by their lovely windows.
And look what these gorgeous plants are up to!
I bought a skein of amazing Chaiten yarn by Araucania, it's 100% Silk! I got them to wind it into a ball for me - which was a bit of a hassle. It took 4 pairs of hands - thank you for your help, Yarn Company! All in all, a lovely store.

  1. I have a whole mess of chaiten. I *adore* it. My favorie local yarn store was selling certain colorways for 50% off and I snatched up quite a bit more than I probably should have.
