I often think of the concourse. I loved to shop at that Banana Republic on the weekends -- no crowds (they were up at the observation deck) and the strangest oddities of one-offs in design. That morning, I thought about skipping work (near Times Square) to head to WTC for a breakfast at Ecce Panis and some shopping. As I was calling in sick to work, the VP of Merchandising saw me in the gym waiting room. My breakfast at WTC would have to wait for another day. To think that I was once so innocent that a sweet bread, a cup of coffee and a sale on a skirt meant so much to me...

Is it me, or does this anniversary hurt a little more than the others? It is the "five" that is doing it, or did I just fail to mourn and grieve properly?

My Favorite Yarn sources:

  • I find just about all I need from these NYC yarn stores:
  • Pearl and her staff (Betty, Gail, and Amanda among others) have quickly established Knitty City as one of the friendliest yarn stores in NYC. Really! Wide range of yarn in quality and prices. Great selection of books and oh, yes, terrific stock of sock yarn.
  • Jane and her friendly staff run a small but well stocked shop. I always find something there that no one else carries in their shop.
  • Another great place for knitters. Rita and her staff make the place really inviting and Rita listens to her customers about what she should offer as yarn and classes. Don't forget to pet Frankie the Golden Retriever!
  • A true place to sit and knit. Every so often I drop in for lunch and de-stress from a busy workday. I took the Sweater Weather class with John and enjoyed myself immensely. Helene has fine tuned the yarn collection and its coming into its own.
