I was worried about finding Purl Soho in their new location. But it wasn't difficult, just a more bustling area than the last one. However, the moment you step in the door it's calm. This wall of projects greets you with cozy felt pillows, hand embroidered dolls and knit houses.
Maybe it's the walls of yarn that insulate the store, but a kind of hush falls over people as they enter. They whisper politely in a dreamy state of project planning.

I fell into this state myself. A whole wall of Liberty Fabric! It was gorgeous.

Jesse was more into reading The Corrections, but he was very patient with me and the hours and hours I spent shopping at Purl.
And when it's time to go they'll ring you up at this lovely counter. I showed some restraint, buying one ball of road to china yarn and a spice felt bundle. I couldn't choose amongst the Liberties! Next time.
