Lion Brand Yarn Store: NYC grand opening! Answered

Picture of
When Eric and I were in NYC earlier this year, we got an early tour through the half-finished construction zone that will soon be the Lion Brand Yarn store. It should be awesome when finished - I'm jealous of all of you who live in the NY area and can visit!

Official opening date is November 18, at 34 W 15th Street. Check it out!

The Times Square billboards will be running Lion Brand Yarn ads for a bit on opening day - they've put up a mock-up for those of us who can't be there to view it in person.

Is there a secret word or phrase that we can mention for a discount? It may be worth a trip to the store.

Best discount is to get those percentage off coupons in the Sunday newspapers and then buy the yarn at your local stores!

I love yarn. I still haven't figured out knitting or crochet, though. I really must figure at least crochet out - I want a yarn stash so badly. :D

I suggest subscribing to the Lion Brand site for their free newsletter. Very inspirational and they offer discounts and project ideas - some are even yarn projects that don't involve crochet or knitting! Plus they have a vast resource of free patterns and tutorials.

I mean, just check out this cutest hat ever! Makes me want to learn how to crochet a hundred of them to send out to all those baby-hat charity groups out there! And all their lumberjack babies. . .

Anyway, I suggest starting a yarn stash anyway. I have so many gorgeous yarns that I have no intention of knitting up. The colors and textures are so beautiful, I just keep them around as little bundles of inspiration.

Oh, she should! Needs to be super picture obese, though. And maybe some video? :D

I am still trying to get Kitewife to post a crocheted scarf she makes as a gift. It's a spiral.
