Knitting has enjoyed quite a resurgence this year, thanks to the many intricately woven capes/vests/ponchos currently gracing high-end runways. And why spend a few thousand on a Rodarte dress when you can make it yourself through months of the endlessly repetitive motions? Really, though, knitting is quite therapeutic, and no craft mart offers a more welcoming shopping experience than Lion Brand Yarn Studio in Flatiron. The small, brightly lit space specializes in endless varieties of yarn, from the basic namesake Lions to the jazzier niche line Vanna's Choice (yes, as in letter-turner White). A treasure trove of needles and accessories rounds out the offerings, all reasonably priced. Numerous classes and free in-store assistance ensure that your shawl turns out perfect, not knotted. This place is quite a hub for your hobby. 34 West 15th Street, 212-243-9070, (10011)
