Before yarn, sweaters were made with strips of paper and cats were often found tangled in linguini. Unspool your creative side with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a beginner knitting or crocheting class at Cook's Arts & Crafts Shoppe, located in Glendale (a $50 value).
Cook's Arts & Crafts Shoppe, a craft-supply store helmed by yarn whisperer Virginia Cook and her granddaughter Michelle for more than 40 years, helps the knitting naïve become dexterous experts. During each of the private one-on-one classes, those who yearn to yoke yarn spend two-and-a-half hours learning to knit, purl, chain stitch, and more (a $20/hour value). Stuff-stitchers are supplied with yarn, needles, and a take-home instruction booklet, perfect for late-night learning or tackling spiders. Let fingers do the talking as Virginia or Michelle help you start a breezy scarf for spring days or a thick ski mask for piggy-bank-robbing days. Classes are by appointment only during regular business hours. Call to schedule your class and mention your Groupon.
