Best Place to Make What You Wear
Knitting is no longer just for lonesome grannies sitting in their rocking chairs at home. Thanks to the energetic trendsetters at Knit-One-One, knitting in the East Bay can be both a social and utilitarian hobby that anyone with fingers and patience can quickly master. The cozy studio space where Knit-One-One hosts classes is known by regulars as the "knitting spa" due to the warm atmosphere and delectable goodies provided by owner Sile Convery and neighboring Sweet Adeline bakery. But don't expect to learn the same dull stitches you learned in home ec here. The experts at Knit-One-One are the masters of everything crafty: from crochet, to purling, to spinning, to sewing — you want it, they'll make it. And they'll teach you a thing or two about how to make clothes for yourself (and your pets) in the process. Classes range from beginner levels ("Knitting 101") to more advanced ("Crocheting Contemporary Granny Squares"), and are accompanied by a regular schedule of outings, events, and parties that all involve — you guessed it — knitting.
