Purl Soho & Free Yoga

Last week my mom and I took a quick trip up to New York to visit and have a last hoo-ray before things get even more hectic. The one place I truly wanted to go visit was Purl Soho. They carry all types of notions, yarns, fabric, buttons, thread, books, etc. It is completely wonderful. Oh gosh. I just loved it. love love love.

Here is their new store on Broome street. The sweet lady [hand to left] was spinning (spinning is not the correct term. but it works for now) my new skein of yarn. The yarn of which I am currently using while 'learning' to knit. Emphasis on the learning. It's pretty darn difficult.

look at that front area!
so precious and I was so in love with all of these things I just had to take a picture!

*if you're ever in that area, go check it out. here is the address:
459 broome street, new york, ny 10013


Something else I did while in nyc, was take part in the free yoga in bryant park. um, amazing. there were at least 400 other people participating as well.

Look that is just the first half!

It was one of the neatest things I have ever experienced with strangers. Not to mention one of the most uncomfortable with there being quite a few people sitting at tables, minding their own business, and watching all of us for an hour.

If you are in the area, again, until the end of September you can join in with them.
Here is the link.

Thanks mom for taking pictures. you're the best.

You don't even have to know how to do a chair pose, or any other pose for that matter. As you can see, everyone does their own thing, there own way of moving. You can just go, they even have a few extra mats for you to use.

Its the neatest thing to be smack dab in the middle of nyc with all of the sounds, and chaos and pollution, to do some yoga and calm oneself down.
