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. Get your finger on the pulse and some yarn with today's Groupon: for $10 you get $20 toward knitting supplies or classes at Knitty City on the Upper West Side.

With ceiling-high shelves crammed with knitting supplies and comprehensive knitting classes, Knitty City has attracted visiting artists, authors, local hobbyists, and even the New York Times. Knitters and crocheters may stop by the shop to peruse the plentiful collection of yarns, needles, and knitting-related books, which contain yarns about yarns and may be read aloud to newly adopted yarns. Knitty City's Etimo crochet hooks equip stitchers with the soft cushion grips and a smooth heads needed to hook yarn easily ($9.95). Modernize worn-out muumuus with Madelinetosh DK City Lights yarn, a 100% wool fabric hand-dyed in colorful multishades with 225 yards per skein ($20).

Students who already possess weaving weapons, but lack training for combat, can opt to use this Groupon for credit towards any of the classes and workshops ($30). The two-hour beginner knitting course ($30), the stitch-steadying two-hour crochet workshop, and other available courses serve as part of Knitty City's community-serving mission, as envisioned by owner Pearl Chin. Community members may partake in the shop's interactive culture by purchasing supplies and classes, or by meeting designers and authors at frequent book signings and events.
