We have safely arrived in NYC, touching down just as light snow was falling on the tarmac. Incredibly beautiful, although it hasn't taken us all that long to work out that there is another definition in NY for being cold. Really cold ~ like minus 5 degrees celcius!
We have already seen many wonderful sights, have taken many photos with an emphasis on color and have shopped to fill our suitcases and more. Today however I would like to share with you my trip to Purl in Soho.

With map and metro ticket in hand, PurlSoho is really very easy to find. Their new location is fabulous and has considerably increased their floor/wall space allowing for the most amazing displays of color. Fortunately I was permitted to take lots of photos!

I really appreciate the effort the store owners/employees have made to carefully display their merchandise thereby providing inspiration and ideas.
If you're ever in NYC it is well worth the effort it to take a ride on the subway and venture to Soho (which by the way is a really friendly neighborhood) and spend some time browsing at Purl. It is great color therapy and you are sure to walk away with some stash enhancement.
