After an easy journey with lots of space (upgrade!) and a little knitting I arrived in New York on Thursday evening where I met up with Hannah. We spent yesterday afternoon walking around downtown where we found the adorable Purl Soho and Purl Patchwork and had lunch at the lovely Once Upon a Tart beside Purl. I love this very springy display. I picked up some yarn and cotton stuffing for a new toy I'm working on. I'm looking forward to trying this more natural stuffing (which I got in Purl Patchwork - ask for it) and it was surprisingly cheap - comparable to the price of the polyester stuff at home. Today we wandered around and had a picnic in central park before exploring the Natural History museum where I met a Narwhal skeleton and found some yarn making. Aren't these spindles beautiful? If you're NYC I'll be at The Point tomorrow from 2 with lots of samples and books - I'd love to see you there.
