You can learn to knit for free in Bryant Park. And the research and main lending libraries are right by!

Oddly, Knit New York is downtown — a few blocks east of Union Square. Why didn’t they do it in Washington Square Park?

Also, as a new weird place that sells yarn, I noticed that Ivy League Stationers (“We give change with a smile!”), near Columbia, is now selling yarn and needles. But oddly, expensive yarn — like Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. I mentioned that I didn’t know they sell yarn, and a couple weeks later, they posted a sign in the window that says “We sell yarn and knitting needles!”
