Knitting can be a helpful hobby in the winter when you need a scarf for extra warmth or a sturdy needle to chip your way out of a frozen cave. Set yourself up for chilly months with today's Groupon: for $62, you get a four-week basic knitting skills class (a $75 value) including supplies (a $50 value) at Knit Knack in Arvada (a $125 total value).
Knit Knack's passionate teachers hook students with easy-going instruction combined with a laser-like focus on essential yarn-smithing skills. Classes meet twice a week, with the first two weeks of the course committed to mastering the techniques and stitches necessary to complete most projects or become a teddy-bear surgeon. A fix-it intensive pits students against common first-time mistakes and provides tips to correct epidemic errors without suffering the frustration of a ruined project. At the end of the course, attendees will produce a Ratatouille-pattern beret and be prepared to start more complex projects. Knit Knack provides all yarn, needles, and reference materials and carries a full suite of additional supplies for those who assign themselves homework or are attempting to knit a new house.
An espresso bar stocked with Dazbog products keeps the shop lively and fills the air with the roasted scent of coffee. The extra caffeine drives novices and experts through the final legs of projects, clarifies minds to decode complex pattern puzzles, and energizes needles without jamming them in exposed sockets.
