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 one two-hour beginner or advanced-beginner group knitting class at Knit One (a $25 value). Although materials are not included, students do receive a 10% discount on any Knit One purchases they make on the same day as their class.
Knit One provides first-time knitters and seasoned thread tamers with comprehensive instruction in the needle-wielding arts. Beginning knitting classes accommodate up to five students and stimulate dexterous digits through step-by-step construction in a pressure-free environment, helping participants choose yarn to fit various needle sizes and hone basic techniques, such as knit and purl stitches. Unlike patching up one’s perforated parachute, advanced-beginning classes assume a certain familiarity with knitting. Requiring a greater understanding of yarn-judo strategies and, occasionally, additional materials, advanced-beginning classes help students transform flashy phonebook pages into fetching pullover sweaters.
To prep for class, students can check out the calendar for class times and recommended skill levels or scope out Knit One's stitch helper videos. An online yarn bin allows customers to search for 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.
