A trip to Lion Brand Yarn studio

As you know, from reading this blog, I love discovering new and unique shops and recently, Lion Brand Yarn Studio came to my attention.  Located at 34 West 15th St in New York City, Lion Brand was founded in 1878 by Reuben Blumenthal and is still owned and operated by the family five generations later.  My television crew and I paid Lion Brand a visit and that colorful and fun segment was shown last week on our yarn show. Liz Shaw, a very talented designer for the studio, created sweaters for Francesca and Sharkey and you can see those sweaters by visiting their blog called the Daily Wag. Please enjoy these photos taken at Lion Brand Yarn Studio and maybe you'll be inspired to pick up your knitting needles or crochet hook!
