Knitting was invented to turn the tumbling balls of yarn that littered the badlands habitat of early man into a soft, warm blanket for man's first pet rock. Create something cozy with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two 2-hour introductory sessions in knitting or crocheting at A Stitcher's Haven in Plantation (a $40 value). Supplies must be purchased separately at the store.
A Stitcher's Haven is a full-service needlework shop that provides tutelage in knitting and crocheting, with individual lessons devoted to specific methods. Thread artists lead knitting 101 courses through foundational rubric, demonstrating how to begin projects with methods for casting on, learning the knit stitch, and duct-taping over accidental holes. During a subsequent knitting session, classes progress to additional techniques such as purling and binding off.
Crocheting 101 sessions follow a similar schedule, embarking on fabric voyages by bestowing on nimble fingers the aptitude to successfully start patterned apparel. Stitched together in a Comic Sans font, lesson plans include instructions on how to chain stitch, single crochet, and use a multitude of other methods. Students depart from the second session of each course with the necessary knowledge to craft first projects and begin their own line of trendy toe vests.
