This winter I plan to channel some old-world “know-how” into my life and finally learn how to sew and knit… properly. As a city-kid, “knitting” was never something that hit my radar until recently but I would really love to tap into to this creative zone and learn to make fun things for the kids and for the home. I have always loved the look of Purl Soho with its walls chock full of colorful yarns, beautiful fabrics and cute-as-a-button trims but I always felt intimidated by my dire lack of craftiness. The store recently moved to a new huge space on Broome Street and they are now offering classes (yippie!) so I am definitely jumping on board. If you don’t have a chance to visit the store… do check out their website which is enticing and inspiring.
Also check out this adorable little make-your-own Alphabet Block kit for babies…would be a nice gift for a friend.
