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 $25, you get three beginner knitting or crocheting classes at Friends Of Wool (a $50 value) in Holland. Friends Of Wool is open Tuesday–Saturday.
The experienced instructors at Friends Of Wool impart stitching wisdom to new knitting and crocheting practitioners. In three one-hour classes, new knitters will learn to cast on, bind off, and amuse kittens with dangling bits of yarn. The classes also seek to imbue pupils with the skills needed to complete their first projects. Alternately, crocheting newcomers can learn crochet chain- and single-stitches so they can bring wooly creations to life and subsequently teach them about the power of friendship.
With all classes, students must supply their own needles or a hook—depending on their craft of choice—plus a ball of yarn, which can be selected from the shop's selection of imported British wools ($10–$15 to buy necessary materials from Friends Of Wool). All classes can be scheduled at the student's convenience during Friends Of Wool's business hours. Get today's deal to learn a new craft to produce a sense of satisfaction that’s unmatched even by drafting an impressive fantasy curling team or finally realizing that you’re (spoiler alert) a ghost.
