Purl By the Sea is Closing

It was with great sadness that I read Nora Franzetti’s email announcing the closing of Purl By the Sea in Montauk. While it’s difficult to call a yarn store that’s a 3 1/2 hour trip from your home a LYS, Purl By the Sea is such a special place where everyone’s always glad to see you. Further, as a knitting haven, it has a great assortment of yarn for the budget conscious as well as the yarn snob. To add to the benefits, Nora added a broad selection of knitting books, with many that I had wanted to add to my knitting bookshelf.

Since Purl By the Sea is closing my husband and I decided to trek out to Montauk every weekend that we didn’t have other plans this summer to get our dose of beach time and yarn store time.

I hope that other knitters on the east end of Long Island make the trip to experience the warmth of this cozy store.
