Aristotle was the first to write that what separates man from beast is not our ability to reason but rather our ability to use yarn and needles to knit our own books. Craft your own copy of Poetics with today's Groupon: for $15, you get any two knitting classes at Far North Yarn Co. (a $30 value).
Far North Yarn Co.'s skilled and seasoned instructors guide knitters of all ages through hands-on projects designed to accommodate all skill levels. A monthly schedule gets knitting needles clacking with classes instructing students on how to craft items such as a Done by Monday afghan, whose elegant design both warms snugglers and adds a personal touch to couch-cushion forts. A class on felted slippers equips knitters with the means to shuffle silently and stylishly, and students in the rolled-edge-hat class can tuck hair and ears into homemade comfort. Meanwhile, one-hour one-on-one private lessons give pupils individualized access to knitting senseis.
All of Far North Yarn Co.'s classes require knitters to bring their own materials or buy them on-site. Material costs vary depending on class and style but can cost up to $60. The store’s wide inventory of yarns, tools, and books tempts hands with endless promises of knitted curios and houseboat cozies.
