Why buy your fall clothes when you can make them? In anticipation of chunky-knit season, the Boston Center for Adult Education is debuting a series of single-session knitting classes starting in September.
Those looking to walk away with a ready-to-wear piece can choose between the hat and scarf sessions; the more ambitious can go for the Knitter's Crash Course, a three-hour foundation class that takes you from cast on to bind off. Aspiring DIYers can register online; class costs range from $29 to $51, not including materials.
