For kids, snow days generally mean sledding, building snowmen, making snow angels, and otherwise getting outside to play in the cold, wet, wintry mix. But as we mature, somehow the draw of indoors tends to get stronger. Plus, even during Snowmageddon a few years ago, Baltimore wasn’t exactly cross country skiing and snowshoeing terrain. So what are we adults to do when the city (maybe) shuts down thanks to a few anticipated inches? Do what the snowed-in have done for centuries: take up a knitting project. You may already have a few scarves under your belt, thanks to the resurgence of knitting as a craft and social activity in recent years. If you’re ready to take it to the next level (and maybe take on a project that won’t take forever and ever) you may want to sign up for one of Woolworks’ awesome upcoming workshops. The fabulous yarn store offers private instruction available by appointment. But they also have specialized workshops like their upcoming “Tailgate Mitts” workshop, where you’ll make a pair of the beautifully patterned half-gloves above. It’s the perfect way to keep busy and cozy (and fashionable!) during these wintry days ahead.
Woolworks is located at 6117 Falls Road in Baltimore. For more information on their classes, or to register, visit www.woolworksbalt.com.
