Knitting was invented to turn the tumbling balls of yarn that littered the badlands habitat of early man into a soft, warm blanket for man's first pet rock. Create something cozy with today's deal: for $10, you get a two-hour group or one-hour private beginner knitting class (a $25 value) at Knit One on Murray Avenue. Although materials are not included, students do receive a 10% discount on any Knit One purchases on the same day as their class. Check out the class calendar here.
Knit One provides first-time knitters and seasoned kniterans with comprehensive instruction on the needle-wielding arts. Beginning knitting classes stimulate dexterous digits through step-by-step construction in a pressure-free environment. Those who opt for a one-hour private class will fast-track their yarn-wrangling refinement, while group participants can enjoy the gabbing goodness of an old-fashioned stitch-and-dish, sans only a friendly grandma archetype serving up symbolic muffins and meta-tea. To prep for class, students can scope out Knit One's Stitch Helper videos or sift through the online yarn bin in search of complementary colors or fibers as soft as a baby prince’s night crown.
Knit One focuses on the communal and therapeutic aspects of knitting, welcoming new or established lovers of the fiber arts to practice their craft in a space dedicated to camaraderie and companionship. Whether they're knitting scarves or crocheting a new motorcycle cover, guests can stock up on high-quality needles, yarns, and supplies within the open, airy shop.
Materials are only one part of life at Knit One, though. Guests frequently bring projects with them, settling into comfortable sofas for an afternoon of work and idea swapping. Balls of yarn also unravel in small classes, where students let the day's stress melt away as socks, headbands, and tea cozies come into fruition. No matter what the reason for their visit, customers can count on the shop's knowledgable staff for everything from expert knitting tips to customer service assistance.
