Knitting has proven a valuable skill, as celebrity tailors need ghostwriters to crochet their memoirs and yarn balls double as self-defense against dangerously adorable kittens. Get prepared with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of classes and merchandise at Clever Knits in Vista. Lauded by CityVoters as one of the top five arts and crafts stores in San Diego, Clever Knits offers a friendly, homespun nest on which needle-wielders of all levels can alight and learn. Knitting neophytes benefit from classes such as Knitting 101 and Crocheting 101 classes, where small class sizes and experienced, talented teachers make for a seamless transition into DIY-dom and exclusive knitting circles ($25, includes all materials). Those well on their way to mastering the yarn arts can peruse the store’s merchandise, where they can pair elegant hardwood needles ($7.35) with vibrant Peruvian highland wool (http://gr.pn/huq3kf) ($7) to craft a snuggly body cocoon to survive a particularly long winter or sweeps season.
