Five beginner knitting classes at The Yarn Shop will take fledgling yarn spinners over all the knitting basics—knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, ribbing, and more—as they complete their first scarf. The cost of all materials is covered, including a light or bright wool yarn and size-eight bamboo, circular needles. Additional supplies are available for purchase; the shop carries a full line of knitting and crocheting supplies and enough yarn to fill the scalps of a race of giant Raggedy Ann’s. Help is always available for projects, which many people bring to the shop to work on as they socialize and weave the names of disloyal latch hookers onto their tea cozies. Enjoy a dessert and specialty coffee or tea from The Yarn Shop's Pink Sheep Cafe. See the website for class schedules and pricing.
