Not a Yarn Store for miles

This past weekend, we accompanied some dear friends to NYC for the weekend. Had big plans for covering the big apple and of course I had big plans to find some yarn! But for all the preparations, I had not scouted out the locations of I'm sure all the wonderful stores in the city. So here are some photos. We had an awesome time! I had never seen Times Square before so I was absolutely enamored!!!

Here is the WTC site. I kind of like the NYC hat reflection. Amazing to see the rubble still there. Very sobering.

Here are Lindsay Steph and lady Liberty. Great weather and a very nice Liberty Island and Ellis Island excursion.
Here we are and I have really bad wind-blown hair! NYC skyline (financial district) behind us.
Here we are in the Ferris Wheel inside the ToysRUs in Times Square.
Here is Paige hamming for the camera; Times Square was really cool.
Her shirt says "I didn't ask to be a princess, but if the crown fits..."

I would love to really see NYC. We were there for the Ellis Island dedication a hundred years ago on an invite. Just there on a Sunday. My husband does not wish to go back. We parked in Manhatten, then ferried to the island from Battery Park. Saw a drug bust, a protest and met a lot of interesting people. I loved it. Guess we have to plan for yarn shops.

It sounds like you had a great time! Next time you need to borrow my guide to yarn stores in the US!
