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 $10, you get a one-hour beginners' knitting class (a $20 value) at Knit, located on Wentworth Street in the heart of downtown.
Helping to weave creative visions of novice and ninja knitters alike, Knit promotes art therapy through a winding selection of yarns, accessories, and knitting classes. Entangle your mind in a tapestry of artist musings via Knit's beginners' classes, which are held every Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. Under the guidance of well-versed and welcoming artists, burgeoning crafters play with textures and patterns, working with solid colors or strewing them together like jagged jazz. Through each class, students of all ages and genders build a creative community around needles, yarn, and knitting folklore. Possible creations include scarves, blankets, or full-scale busts of John D. Rockefeller. Indulge your neck or head in luxurious fibers or chunky yarns, all available in the store that’s staffed by a helpful, close-knit family of employees.
