Chill Zone: New York State of Mind


Do you look forward to the weekend as a time to unwind, “chill”, and maybe do some lazy stitching while you listen to a podcast, sip a favorite drink, and eat your favorite snack? We’re starting new series called “Chill Zone”, where we’ll suggest a few good options, inspired by a favorite place, person, or time period. Just click on the words below each header to take you to links we think are fun and interesting.

    I like this idea! The mini knitted Empire State Building instantly reminded me of the movie “James & the Giant Peach”. That would be a fun watch if you wanted something more whimsical, lol. Or maybe the remake of “King Kong”! That’s a good, long movie to knit to. Thank you for the inspiration!
