What You'll Get
Much like spiderwebs, knitwear possesses intricate woven patterns, a sturdy structure, and a sticky coating that catches all its owners' meals. Celebrate woven webs with today's Groupon: for $40, you get your choice of three classes at Woolplay (up to a $90 value).
Woolplay offers more than 100 kinds of yarn and easy-to-follow classes for fiber fanatics of all abilities. Classes last around 1.5 hours, and use time far more wisely than 90-minute horror-musicals about action figures. Take a three-class series, such as Learn to Knit, which instructs beginners on casting on, purling, and knitting. Learn to Knit in the Round, a two-class series, spotlights circular and double-pointed needles, which students employ on a hat-making journey. Single-session classes maintain a pointed focus, like a surgical laser or hoop-jumping dolphin. Easy Lace introduces students to a simple lace pattern, which could eventually find its home in a cozy scarf. Fixing Your Mistakes reveals how to correct for human error, a less burdensome task than repairing sloppy mittens knit by parakeets. Some classes require a $10 to $30 materials fee; check the schedule for more details.
Woolplay maintains a blog, calling attention to interesting patterns and alluring new projects. Acquire a handy new skill at Woolplay and shower friends with knitted gifts, like warm socks, cozy scarves, and felted carburetors.
