YARN CRAWL!!!!

hey all!

below is a comprehensive list of all the yarn stores i'm going to visit on the yarn crawl. as i decide on dates, i'll add additional posts to indicate that. i'll probably start with the lower manhattan shops in two weekends, but i'll post to specify my route when i decide. i'll be verifying the addresses before i go, but definitely let me know if i've missed a store!!

thanks!

Smiley's is...interesting. Think of the yarn section at Michael's or Jo-Ann's on a much larger scale.

If you do make the trek out there I suggest going during one of their sales when things are marked down to $1 or so.
