String is a knitting shop I discovered last week right in my neighborhood!  I searched online for a shop in my area of NYC because I snapped one of my wooden knitting needles in two.  I know, I know, how could I break a knitting needle?  Well, it was shoved into an overnight bag that had plenty of room  until I added a beach towel.  Then it was sayonara knitting needle.  And now for a moment of silence.

Anywho, this was my opportunity to find a knitting shop on the Upper East Side.  I only went in for needles and ended up with 2 skeins of yarn and a length of ribbon type stuff to make a scarf as well!

I actually love the new needles I bought.  They slide better through the yarn than the previous ones!  The brand name is "Addi" and they are made in Germany.

String has all kinds of soft, chunky, sparkly, fancy shmancy yarns. You can check them out here. I can't wait to take my mom when she comes to visit!  I love when a problem leads to finding something unexpected and awesome right in your own neighborhood!  Where is your favorite knitting shop?

Wishing you big waves and an artful day,


  1. Cape May Yarn and Fiber Shop is a really nice store, they are very helpful and very encouraging. They have open knitting on Monday afternoons, I am going to go hang out one of these days. Home Made in Swainton is good too, Julie the shop owner is very friendly and helpful!

  2. Yes! I love the Cape May shop too! Some lovely ladies in there! I've never been to Home Made but would love to go!
