City Bakery Night of Knitting & Hot Chocolate

Knitters line up for Hot Chocolate & Knitting - NYCHow can you go wrong with a combination of Knitting & Hot Chocolate? If you’re a knitting chocoholic, you don’t have to even ask. So when I heard about the City Bakery Night of Knitting and Hot Chocolate on Thursday, February 18th, I signed up right away.

In typical New York style, knitters were out in force lined up down West 18th Street waiting for the doors to open. There were six different kinds of hot chocolate promised in addition to a variety of bite size chocolate inspired desserts so that you could taste them all without feeling guilty. (Of course, dinner was served and included a number of comfort foods such as fried chicken and mac and cheese. For me, these options paled compared to the desserts.)

Not to be out done, a number of New York Yarn Stores offered mini-classes inspired by hot chocolate from marshmellow hats to cupholders. Participants could bring their own supplies or buy a small kit.

Since no party is complete without favors and this festivity was no exception. There were Knitty City totes filled with knitting goodies and chocolate chocolate chip cookies.
