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: for $15, you get a 90-minute Learn To Knit class at The Fibre Studio (a $30 value).
The Fibre Studio's seasoned instructor guides fledgling knitters through yarn-taming techniques within a cozy classroom. The class informs students of basic knitting terminology and skills and warns against common beginner errors, such as knitting near sheared sheep. While completing the class project, a plain-edge or picot-edge garter-stitch washcloth, students grasp an understanding of the fundamental cast-on, knit-stitch, purl-stitch, and bind-off techniques. The studio supplies classes with the appropriate 100% cotton yarn, needles, and patterns and awards students with 10% off its stock of natural and hand-dyed yarns to furnish future knitting projects of floppy hats and woolen tuxedos. The upcoming class schedule is listed here.
