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 today’s Groupon from Stash: The Midtown Yarn Shop, located in the Cooper-Young section of midtown Memphis. Choose from the following options:
- For $20, you get four knitting or crocheting classes (a $40 value).
- For $35, you get a five-hour knitting workshop with lunch (a $75 value).
- For $12, you get $25 worth of yarn and knitting supplies.
Stash's knitting instructors guide students of all experience levels in the intertwining of wooly masterpieces and crocheted creations, and also furnish project-makers with brand-name yarn and equipment. Students assemble in four separate Tuesday- or Wednesday-evening classes to knit scarves or crochet purses while mingling and freestyling over the beats of clicking needles. Alternatively, students choose between four knitting workshops, during which they lunch on sandwiches and chips while nourishing noggins with five hours worth of stitch instruction. Attend a Knitting 101 workshop to learn the basics of knitting, purling, binding off, and reading patterns; or opt for the Make It Quick for Christmas workshop after a sudden realization that it is no longer last July. A Crochet 101 class promotes crocheted creativity, and a Finishing 101 session delves into blocking, seaming, and buttonholes. Customers can also choose to peruse the shop's selection of tools and materials, such as the Rowan Kid Classic ($9.95) or Tahki Cotton Classic yarn ($6.50). A pair of Crystal Palace circular needles ($11.95–$14.95) can weave threads into tea cozies, and a knitting bag ($25–$135) prepares mobile customers for an emergency that requires them to hastily knit a parachute or a passport.
