Where to Knit in……NYC
May 17, 2010
Once in a while I discover a great new place to knit in public, and I gotta share:
Bull Moose Dog Run,
Theodore Roosevelt Park,
New York, New York
What it has going for it (apart from the hilarious name): Sunny but also shady; dappled light makes for great stitch definition. Ample benches for ample knitters, and also for knitting bags and any equipment you’re hauling from Little League. The gravel may get stuck in your toes, but it’s a far superior surface to the packed dirt at other dog runs. You’d almost think you were in the Jardin des Tuileries, cherie!
It’s so exciting!
If it gets to be too much fun….
Recommended knitting for Bull Moose Dog Run: Courthouse Steps. I had a yen to make one of these again. I’ve changed up the pattern by doing the non-ticking “steps” in different colors. Perfect for Bull Moose or Little League, and so far it’s a good size for the subway.
NOTE ABOUT EXCITING EVENT: This afternoon, from 4-6, CAT BORDHI !!! is going to be meeting and greeting and signing books at Knitty City, 79th & Amsterdam. It’s Cat’s first visit to the city ever, so New York knittahs–represent! I’m not going to miss it.
