What You'll Get
An unknown author declared that sewing mends the soul, though forward-thinking pragmatists tend to prefer ethereal tweezers and rubber cement. Enhance auras the old-fashioned way with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get an Introduction to Knitting class at Knit and Caboodle in St. Charles (a $50 value).
Tucked in an idyllic nineteenth century brick building, Knit and Caboodle arms wonder-weavers with the tools and skills to craft gorgeous homemade goods. Each two-hour Introduction to Knitting class edifies wishful stitchers with the basics of knitting and includes needles, yarn, and a helpful beginner’s tome. Students learn how to cast on and bind off a project. They also learn the proper knit and purl techniques for crafting plush, comfy scarves, sweaters, and voodoo dolls. Post-class, embroiderers can browse the cozy shop’s wide variety of locally hand-dyed and imported yarns, including more than 110 shades of Cascade 220 wool along with organically grown cotton and clown wigs.
