It's been an eventful week here in Ithaca, but one of the highlights has certainly been our visit to Knitting, etc. , a local knit shop with an absolutely ridiculous selection of incredible yarns that are just begging to be taken home.
I knew I was going to dig this place immediately because I was not met with the customary shocked expression that accompanies my entrance into any yarn shop, making me feel like I've accidentally walked into the women's room at a Junior League luncheon. Nope, owner Hickory Lee was nothing but extremely helpful and clearly passionate about the business of knitting.
The store itself dwarfs anything we have in the Bull City, stocked to the rafters with amazing yarn, a gigantic wall full of tools and needles and a book section that would rival Amazon.com. Nice!
So, if you're passing through Ithaca at any point, I would definitely take a side trip and go see Hickory and her crew at the shop. Even if you aren't passing through, Knitting, etc. is getting ready to launch an online store so you can shop from the comfort of your own home. Either way, you should check them out. Your stash will thank you.
Knitting, etc. is located at:
2255 N. Triphammer Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850
