Re: [knitting-937] Chock Full of Knitting Goodness (Really, this time)

If you ever go into Manhattan, I like The Point Knitting cafe on Bedford Street in the village.  Their staff is really friendly and knowledgable, and it's really not too far if you're near the F train.  Then there's Purl on Sullivan street, which isn't too far from there....I find them a little pricey and claustrophobic, but they've got some beautiful yarns.  And there's Knit New York on E. 14th street, which carries only natural fibers, and they've got some GREAT yarns that aren't totally unreasonable, plus a whole huge cache of patterns and books they'll let you sit and peruse and use to your heart's delight.

>It's on the corner of Atlantic Ave and Bond St. You can take the A or G Train to Hoyt-Schermerhorn, walk two (I think it's two) blocks to Atlantic, cross over, make a left and walk down a few blocks. Otherwise the B65 & B61 runs right there on Atlantic. When you get off the train, if you walk across to Livingston St turn back towards the train station. That way you'll be going in the right direction and the next street should be State St.
