Like surgery, knitting requires needles and precision, and emits a telltale buzzing noise when you've done something wrong. Learn to keep a steady hand with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a one-hour private knitting lesson (a $55 value) and $20 worth of supplies at Gotta Knit! (a $75 total value).

During the one-hour private lesson, one of the experienced instructors at Gotta Knit! tutors a stitchery student in knitting basics or more advanced techniques. Cast on yarn to knit and purl for the first time, or brush up on sophisticated techniques such as cables, lace, and Fair Isle color work. Students knitting cold-weather gear including scarves, mittens, sweaters, and cross-country skis can learn to perfect armholes and necklines as well as how to remedy mistakes. Stock up on $20 worth of knitting supplies including a rainbow of yarn hues ($8+/ball) and machine-washable merino wool from Italy ($11.50), or treat yourself to luxuriously soft alpaca ($10–$24) and fine cashmere ($28+) to handcraft a plush neck warmer or lavish bikini.

Gotta Knit!

In 1987, Laura Eackloff, recent podiatry school graduate, took her first knitting class. In 1998, she sold her podiatry practice and opened Gotta Knit!, a knitting center in which she teaches classes along with her partner, Goldie Axelrod. Both experienced in the medical field, their nurturing natures serve their students well, as they support them in learning to craft garments and accessories from yarn. Each year Goldie and Laura fly to knitwear shows in Italy to keep up with the latest trends in shape, color, and style. Once home, they write patterns on request for on-trend garments that fit the customer's body and knitting ability.
