It is with great sadness that I note that a friendly New York City yarn emporium is going out of business. Since it is located on 36th Street and Madison Avenue, a neighborhood I rarely frequet, the second floor shop isn’t one of my usual yarn haunts. Nevertheless, it’s always a source of inspiration.
By coincidence, I was in the neighborhood and stopped by to get a pattern for an Elsebeth Lavold sweater that I had seen in the shop before my wedding. At the time, they didn’t have a copy of the pattern. It is the “Hild” sweater which is an interesting variation on a ribbed pullover that works in Lavold’s viking inspired cables. Since the store was going out of business, I bought the store copy of “Designer’s Choice-Book Nine”. It has a couple of other patterns that I’m interested in.
