This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

WED 7It's not like we need a whole lot of afghan blankets in this 90-degree heat. But really, it's the hip factor that counts. When the folks who run "Stitch & Bitch" knitting sessions tell us that knitting is "yoga for the brain," we know we better skim the latest copy of the New Yorker, put on our favorite Urban Outfitters getup, and trot down to the Yarn Tree (2000-3 Harrison St., Hollywood). Its website describes the store as "an open, warm environment where strangers become family, and people learn from one another. At The Yarn Tree we take pride in combining ultra hip yarns with the latest fashion trends." The company also offers classes like "Begin to Knit," "Learn to Crochet," and "Socks." Look for upcoming special events like a "Purl Jam Knit-A-Thon" and a "Loop-d-Loop trunk show." Tonight's "Stitch & Bitch" lasts from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Call 954-921-1160, or visit (DF)
