Knitty City was the only yarn shop I visited. The purchases shown include a hank of yarn sold by a kitty rescue group (never seen it before). I hope to blend at least one of the hanks into another Color Affection shawl. Colors are pretty close - reddish, purple and charcoal.
And of course, there are books. One from the Sketchbook Project at the Brooklyn Art Library and two from The Cloisters, because I like biographies and history.
