Best Knit Store New York 2001 - Magry Knits
Each Polaroid along the wall frames a nearly identical picture, a customer resplendent in a clingy dress, body-skimming skirt, or kicky hatall creations of Michele Renee at MAGRY KNITS. But as smart as those clothes are, the pearl of this knit store is its hand-dyed, homespun yarn. These unique balls embrace a joyful mélange of color and texture, unspooling rich skeins of silk, cashmere, mohair, and wool. A bonus: Renee leads knitting classes and does fine reweaving and repair work on even the most moth-eaten of sweaters.
