SOHO—This Thursday, November 3, the fashionable crafters behind Wool and the Gang are hosting "Knit Night." Stop by their boutique at 98 Thompson Street from 6pm to 9pm to get help with knitting and shop the fall/winter collection at 10% off. This is an event for people with all levels of knitting experience, so feel free to bring half-finished projects that could use a little expert-level love. Just RSVP to email@example.com so that they know you're coming. [RackedWire]
