So, I decided to check out Knit-A-Way in Brooklyn, after we passed it on the bus a couple of weeks ago.
Knit-A-Way is on a stretch of Atlantic Avenue that is bordered by rapidly gentrifying and/or gentrified neighborhoods. If you’ve read any Jonathan Lethem novels (I only read Fortress of Solitude, but apparently, they’re all the same) then you know about this neighborhood’s on-going tony-fication.

Look at the awesome needle selection!


* I ran smack into my college roommate and her husband when I was going to Knit-A-Way the second time, and she confirmed the un-gentrified powers of this street because they live about a block away from Knit-A-Way and they are unable to get a dog walker from any of the posh neighborhoods nearby because, as she says, “We are on this weird periphery where no dog walkers go.”
