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.
$29 for Two Learn to Knit Classes ($60 Value)
In their first class, beginners aged 16 and older learn to knit and bind off with colorful skeins and provided tools, and in their second class, learn to cast on, purl, and read a pattern. By classes’ end, students should have the basic know-how to knit their own scarf. Check the schedule for upcoming class times.
Every Saturday, local knitters congregate on plush couches within Lovelyarns’ sunlit shop and secluded back patio, chatting as they spin skeins of exotic and locally made wool. This weekly open house is one facet of Lovelyarns’ efforts to foster a community of crafters, which has earned the shop a slew of awards and recognition from sources such as the Baltimore Sun and Style Magazine. In addition to offering classes, instructors welcome knitters to drop by any time for help unraveling a tricky scarf or hopelessly tangled kitten. They also recruit knitters to join in volunteer knitting and crocheting projects that benefit local charities and global causes.
