You started out braiding zigzag declarations of love called friendship bracelets, the addictive wrist confection and, color-wise, the only competitor Lisa Frank unicorns ever had. Because its been years since youve picked up a soggy spool of embroidery thread, it might be time to flex your craft muscles on the next level in finger art knitting. Youve seen Karelle Levys knitastic lines full of pieces she made with her own handmade fabrics, and now you can learn how to needle up your own creation. Itll take more than one class to be in the New York Times like KRELwear, but Stichin Boozin Bitches goes down each Monday from 8 p.m. to midnight. So head to Michaels and buy a starter kit or pick one up at the Standard before the session begins. Youll arrive in the midst of the annual Long Scarf contest, so if you notice some needly aggression, its all in the name of bragging rights and some awesome Standard Spa prizes.
