What You'll Get
Knitting can be a helpful hobby in the winter when you need a scarf for extra warmth or a sturdy needle to chip your way out of a frozen cabin. Prepare for chilly months with this Groupon: for $25, you get five knitting classes at Knit Schtick in Costa Mesa (a $50 value).
During a schedule of 2-hour classes, Knit Schtick's teachers whisk students of all skill levels and aged 12 or older through the ins and outs of knitting techniques. Novices build a base of fundamental skills with loaned needles and yarn, and more experienced purlers bring in their current undertakings, learn nuances of the craft behind harder projects, and wrestle their yarn from a gang of feral cats. Knit Schtick's colorful, wool-strewn retail space, which hosts classes and events such as weekly high tea on Thursdays and Frank Sinatra music on Fridays, creates a pleasant backdrop that imbues classes with sociable warmth. As with an elegant restaurant or a public restroom, a reservation is required.

About Knit Schtick
On Fridays, Frank Sinatra songs drift amid skeins of yarn. On Saturday mornings, The Beatles harmonize over a community table spread with coffee, tea, and British breakfast treats. Located in Newport Beach, Knit Schtick is a meeting place for knitters of all experience levels to hone their skills in good company. In Knitting 101 classes, beginners learn basics such as how to purl and how to produce a full-body cocoon out of three feet of thread. In general classes, those who already possess a solid knowledge of knitting techniques work on individual projects, looping yarn into scarves, wraps, socks, or blankets.
