It seems counterintuitive, but there’s no better time to take up knitting than spring. You can perfect the art before the cold hits. The Preston Royal Purls Knitting Social takes place this Friday at Preston Royal Library. Arrive at 1 p.m. Novices will be provided with complimentary needles and yarn.

Celebrate Easter among the NorthPark Center tulips this Saturday at 10 a.m. In addition to an egg hunt, there’ll be face painting, cuddly bunnies and live music from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Here are all the details.

The Whole Foods in the Shops at Park Lane also has some Easter fun planned this Saturday. Beginning at 11 a.m., take a selfie with the Easter Bunny, shop local vendors or enjoy a magic show. There’ll surely be plenty of kiddos in attendance, so it’s probably no coincidence that Angie’s Friends plans to host a Dog Adoption event on the patio until 3 p.m.
