Aristotle was the first to write that what separates man from beast is not our ability to reason but rather our ability to use yarn and needles to knit our own books. Craft your own copy of Poetics with today's Groupon: for $30, you get admission to the Learn to Knit I and Learn to Knit II classes, plus yarn to use in class and a set of needles, at My Sister Knits in Fort Collins (a $66 value). Customers must complete Learn to Knit I before attending Learn to Knit II.
The knowledgeable staff at My Sister Knits guide blossoming yarn-wranglers through the ins and outs of knitting during informative two-hour classes held in a red-brick carriage house. Armed with their included set of needles, students in Learn to Knit I learn essentials such as the garter stitch, purling, and the latest snowman-scarf fashion trends. Learn to Knit II expands fundamental skills, adding in slipping stitches and a lesson on joining yarns. Each class accommodates about 12 students, and expert staff members are on hand to provide encouragement and enough yarn to crochet a sweater for the Lincoln Monument. In addition to group classes, My Sister Knits sets up private lessons and open knitting nights. Click here for the current class schedule.
