Knitty City is a family-owned New York City yarn shop with a welcoming atmosphere for knitters, crocheters and all types of yarnies! Pearl’s presence made it a haven and community hub.
I’d try to make a day trip of visiting the store from time to time, or at least make a yearly pilgrimage to use my gift card…one of the benefits of having a client who knows you love yarn!!! 🙂
Although I never participated in the Bryant Park scarf knitting events, I made sure to swing by the always-busy Knitty City booth at Vogue Knitting Live, even if only long enough to say hello.
Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures with Pearl to share, but I do have fond memories of visiting the shop for special events; each with a different vibe…like talks by Aniqua of My Kinda Thing, Sue of Sue Rock Originals, and Wallace of That Brother Can Knit.
I’m still not sure I have the words to convey why and how this is such a great loss to many. My condolences to the breadth and depth of her family.
