Knitting is a creative activity that can be done anywhere, like free-verse poetry, purse shopping, or playing saxophone on a pedicab. Exercise your artistic essence wherever you are with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a two-hour knitting or crocheting class at Yorkshire Yarns in Lakewood (a $30 value).
As a helpful haven for needle wielders and purling professionals, Yorkshire Yarns proffers notions, books, patterns, and a wealth of worthy weaveables alongside classes and clubs for amity and instruction. A lofty lineup of themed classes in knitting and crocheting cater to all levels, from doily doyens to the tragically tangled; an intimate group size of six students per class ensures individualized attention. Beginning knitting classes teach cabling colts the basics of commencing and finishing their projects, along with simple knitting and purling techniques, and granny-square greenhorns can get the hang of hooks via introductory crochet courses. Wool whisperers with scores of socks under their belts may choose a more advanced class such as the feather and fan stitch, the prevailing pattern for scarves and afghans, to aid in achieving whimsical yarn-based alternatives to hone insulation projects.
