New York Part II

Purl Soho, known for its beautiful shop in NY and the pretty blog Purl Bee

I have been there once before, last Fall season

but I would go there every week if I could and I'll try to explain why

Purl Soho is the only shop I know that carries fabric, yarn and all imaginable tools to work with them

of high quality materials and makes, and in a reasonable sized shop ~ not too large, not too small

literally everything they have is arranged and organized in a beautiful rainbow of colors

and they showcase the most beautiful projects that show a how-to on their blog Purl Bee

don't you just love all the display of beautiful materials?

the only personal problem I have in this store

is that I go blank when I see all these beautiful materials, so perfectly organized

saying 'Maaike, you want to take ME home with you'

so after wandering around for 45 minutes, I decided to pick a Fall oriented set of different materials

that match in color but vary in structure and type

I like a challenge, you know haha

wool yarn, felt, Liberty and red fabric, red thread and gingham bias tape

without a specific project in mind yet

I am looking at this set every day, dreaming of NY and Purl Soho

and that's enough for now

although, suggestions are always welcome!


bye for now beautiful Purl, hope to see you again

and a very happy weekend to you my dear readers
