Knitting can be a helpful hobby when you need a scarf for extra warmth or a sturdy needle to chip your way out of a frozen cabin. Prepare for inclement weather with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for two beginner knitting or crochet classes (a $40 value)
- $30 for three beginner knitting or crochet classes (a $60 value)
Each crochet or knitting class lasts two hours. Beginner crochet classes are only offered on Saturday. Before classes, Groupon holders can use a 10% discount to purchase supplies. Knitters will need solid-color wool blend worsted-weight yarn and 5-millimeter needles. Crocheters need light-colored worsted-weight yarn and the corresponding hook.
Beneath the high ceilings of Cast Away's yarn shop, towering shelves overflow with bundles of color-coordinated wool, cashmere, and alpaca yarn. Cobblers' tool shelves, iron baby bathtubs, and even a dingy retired from its maritime duties catch the runoff, creating a homey space peppered with vibrant colors for a distinctly bohemian feel.
At the center of this antique bliss is a pair of vintage armchairs, where customers can recline and survey how-to books or familiarize themselves with the supplies for one of Cast Away's staff-taught classes. Though the calendar implies a steady buzz of activity, the shop's proprietor doesn't stop there. She regularly books notable authors and designers for workshops and special lessons that center around projects such as knitted afghan squares and lace vests that add old-timey charm to an outfit without forcing one to wear steel gauntlets.
