While her stitches are knitting

I'd like to buy a friend some yarn for knitting in New York City. What kind and where?

A friend of mine is having an operation next week and she'll be stuck at home for a couple of weeks afterward. She's a knitter and I would like to get her some nice yarn to enjoy while she recovers. I am not a knitter and know almost nothing about yarn, so I'm turning to the hivemind for suggestions of what kind of yarn and what brick and mortar store I can get it.
If there is some knitting-related awesomeness other than yarn, let me know ... (I don't know if she's up to Alice and Wonderland mittens).
