Knitting was invented to turn the tumbling balls of yarn that littered the badlands habitat of early man into a soft, warm blanket for man's first pet rock. Create something cozy with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a two-hour knitting class, including materials, at True Blue Fiber Friends (a $40 value).
With more than 50 years of combined experience in the industry, the owners of True Blue Fiber Friends keep patrons in the loop with education and equipment for knitting, crocheting, dyeing, and other fabric-based projects. In a two-hour class, knitting newbies learn the ropes of basic construction, snagging all the necessary instruction for crafting a scarf. Students will be equipped with all materials, and True Blue Fiber Friends forges its fuzzy pieces from locally produced fibers and yarns so that materials and their knitters can swap similar childhood stories. Students gather around the classroom's table to recreate scenes from favorite knitting-circle action movies, or take a seat in the space’s cushy armchairs to focus on extra-tricky needle movements.
