Knitting circles were once a popular place to exchange rumors about the area's handsomest fireman, which of neighboring towns' mayors were secretly left-handed, and the fate of the Crumb brothers. Get your finger on the pulse and some yarn with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of yarns, needles, kits, and accessories at Yarns By Design, located in Oakmont.

Yarns By Design furnishes a plethora of fine designer yarns alongside the tools required to entwine fibers into intricate knits. Fashion a chic scarf or car-cover from an expansive inventory of threads harvested from sheep, alpacas, and furry fruits. Economical Plymouth Yarns ($4.95–$31.95) and luxury Artyarns ($36.95–$71.50) are easily woven together with Brittany needles and hooks ($6.95–$10.95). Patterns from Dolce Handknits and Interweave Press serve as blueprints for threaded fashions such as trendy sweater capes and blankets that double as parachutes.

While not valid with this Groupon, manager Tamara Hayes and her well-versed cadre of crafters administer group lessons that expound on basic stitches and sophisticated maneuvers for novice and seasoned weavers alike ($10 per hour). To expand their crafting capabilities beyond sunset programming and intercontinental tunneling, kids ages 9 to 12 can enroll in a knitting summer camp at the end of July and into August. A few free knitting and crocheting events are also available.

Yarns By Design

An upscale fiber-arts boutique, Yarns By Design keeps its shelves stocked with high-quality yarns, patterns, and other supplies from all over the globe. Every month, visitors put those materials to work during a number of classes and clubs. Beginning crochet classes, for instance, cover basic techniques and stitches, and needle-felting classes teach students how to use felting needles to create 3D animals. Throughout the year, YBD also offers special workshops hosted by talented designers.

Got a good refresher on my long-dormant knitting skills by an experienced teacher. Beautiful yarn selection!
Jeannine L. · August 26, 2013
I thought the store was beautifully organized. There was a wide variety of yarns with various textures and price points. The beginning knitting class was very informative. The instructor fully explained the knitting techniques of casting on and the knit stitch. She was very attentive to making certain that everyone in the class understood and could fully execute casting on and the knit stitch. I had never picked up knitting needles before attending this class. I look forward to the next lesson.
