Knitting circles were once a popular place to exchange rumors about the area’s handsomest fireman, which of the neighboring towns’ mayors were secretly left-handed, and the fate of the Crumb brothers.

Taught by passionate instructors, Knitting101.org’s focused classes equip 12–15 novice needlers with the skills needed to create their own wearable art. During the 50-minute Knitting 101 course, students learn to execute such maneuvers as the purl, the cast on, and the no-hands drop stitch, taking steps toward the completion of a scarf, hat, or socks. Knitting 102 reinforces the skills picked up in the 101 course and builds upon them with increase stitches, decrease stitches, and the basics of cable knitting, all in an effort to complete a shawl and a sweater during the course of three classes (this Groupon is good for only the first 102 class).

This is the best thing I've bought on Groupon. Teri is a fantastic teacher and friend. She helped me gain so much confidence in my ability to knit! It hasn't even been a year and I've made hand warmers, socks, a sweater, and 2 scarves!
