Just For Women Make something cozy at a knitting class Bundle up this winter with something beautiful and handmade. Knitting has gone from an almost forgotten hobby to a trendy new way to relax. Libraries across the Hudson Valley have started knitting clubs for stitchery enthusiasts. Loopy Mango, a knitwear and DIY brand specializing in chunky yarn and knitted products in Beacon, provides want-to-be knitters a chance to hone their skills. Anna Pulvermakher, co-owner of the flagship store, says that classes are very beginner friendly. "People that have never knit before can come to learn and make a project. We have project specific classes where people can make a scarf, hat or baby blanket in a session rang- ing between one and two hours," says Pulvermakher. No need to bring your own materials. The class fee includes everything you would need to create the project at hand. Pulvermakher says, "We carry distinct chunky yarn, needles and everything you would need. Moms can choose to make the projects in regular size or child size if they are looking to make something for their kids." Already a knitting expert? Gather a group of your friends for a private knitting class and make a project together. "If our class times don't work for you, or if you are not a beginner, you may want to have a private class. We would set up a time that works for you for any group of four or more," says Pulvermakher. Grab a Loopy Mango DIY kit before you go and knit away! An example of a Loopy Mango DIY Kit. They specialize in one-of-a-kind chunky, brightly colored yarn and giant knitting needles.
