FREE Knitting Classes at the Brooklyn Yarn Cafe

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

Winter would be easier if we were all bears, because then we could sleep away several months. Instead, we humans have to find ways to entertain ourselves to avoid winter madness, like watching the entire series of Arrested Development in a three-week span, reading the books we’ve been carrying around for years, etc. Or if you get really ambitious, you can try to knit a cover for your bike so it looks more like your grandmother’s couch when it’s stuck in your apartment for months. If you don’t even know how to knit, or you’ve started a scarf and can’t figure out how to finish it, The Brooklyn Yarn Cafe can be your guide. They have three FREE knitting classes each week. Along with cupcakes, coffee, and snacks, the cafe carries enough yarn to make a cover for your entire apartment.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
