Yarnover  - Avon: $10 for $20 Worth of Knitting Supplies or Classes at Yarnover

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 $10, you get $20 worth of supplies or classes at Yarnover in Bloomfield.

Yarnover unites knitters with a spectrum of specialty yarns and ample space to create scarves, blankets, and other cold-weather accouterments. Inside the expansive strand emporium, baskets and shelves brim with instructional books ($12.95–$30), needles ($4.50+), yarns ($6.40–$40 a skein), and seeds for planting lush sweater trees. Hands-on classes, such as the 1.5-hour Learn to Knit course ($15), introduce students to basics while allowing them to cast on and bind off at their own pace. Additional offerings include the class to create a Mobius scarf with I-cord edge ($25) and the double-knitting class, which reveals techniques for creating reversible-color knitting patterns, two-colored scarves, and fingerless gloves handy for navigating touchscreens and baby-back ribs.

More than a shop, Yarnover often features creations crafted by members of its knitting community, and it also offers new specialty classes each month to keep thumbs as dexterous as a hand-shaped finger puppet.

Yarnover

The experts at Yarnover help knitters of all skill levels learn basic and advanced techniques in knitting classes, as well as help those comfortable enough to knit by themselves navigate the shop and secure buttons, needle cases, and colorful royal alpaca, mulberry silk, or baby llama yarn. During the hands-on classes, students progress at their own pace as they take in wisdom and pointers from experienced teachers and broaden the knowledge of their hands and muscle memory. Guests can also stop by to sharpen their skills and talk trash about crocheters at a free knitting circle held every Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m.

First class last night for my 10 year old and she loved it!

I have only gone to one class so far at Yarnover, but I was very impressed with the level of attention I was given. I felt welcomed and learned quite a bit the first night. I am looking forward to my future interactions with the women at Yarnover. Great place!
