Before the advent of knitting, humans wishing to show off their nimble fingers had to content themselves with baroque pinky swears and Greco-Roman thumb wrestling. Demonstrate dexterous digits with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of knitting supplies and merchandise at All About Yarn in Columbia.
All About Yarn equips web weavers with a continually updated inventory of top-notch yarns and knitting tools including needles, hooks, and patterns. Knitters can construct textile masterpieces or craft snuggly scarves or chic silo koozies with Cascade 220 skeins ($7 each). Berroco Vintage yarn ($6.50/ skein) supplies strands of colorful filaments, and a cornucopia of needles ($5+) cater to knitters of all experience levels. Shoppers can try out potential purchases in All About Yarn’s designated testing area, where guests can gauge how much yarn they need for upcoming projects or demonstrate creative knitting techniques such as the hook and ladder or the reverse halfback pass.
