soho pearl

finally got to visit purl while on a weekend trip to nyc. yarns are arranged roy g. biv-style in tidy square bins. it's tiny shoebox of a store, with a great cozy feel and is not the least bit snobbish. not one, but three young and hip purlsters were on hand the day i stopped by, two of whom were men. the gal, in particular, was really knowledgeable and helpful. favorite finds: alchemy bamboo in fuschia, and two balls of koigu...one in a brilliant peacock blue and the other in a spring-feverish variegated yellow green. my only regret was not bringing my knitting along. i would have sacrificed a trip to bendel's for two hours in purl-vana!
