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 $19, you get a Knitting 101 workshop, which is broken down into two two-hour classes, at Renaissance Yarns in Kent (a $40 value).
Featured in the Kent Reporter, Renaissance Yarns gives knitting newbies the chance to stitch their own scarf or world's largest sock. In the Knitting 101 workshop, yarn spinners mingle with fellow dexterous divas while learning to fashion a scarf from scratch. Give fingers a break from manipulative touchscreens as Renaissance Yarns’ friendly instructors teach how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. Throughout, various stitch combinations are demonstrated for future projects, such as knit hats or woven hotplates.
The Kent Reporter featured Renaissance Yarns in an article about one of the store's fundraising activities. Three Yelpers give the store an average of 4.5 stars, Knitmappers give it an average of four stars, and it has 2,240 fans on Facebook.
