May 4, 2020

Happy 4th of May!

Online learning is in full swing, everyone from children in kindergarten to students in university and here at Baaad Anna’s we are excited to be offering a wide variety of classes and workshops online via ZOOM .  These classes have been providing not only the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques but also a virtual space to meet and connect with others.  The week we have the following two new sessions starting with Rebecca Glazier.

Beyond the Basics: Knitting on DPN’s In the Round and Cables Online via Zoom.

Take your basic knit and purl to another level by learning to knit in the round using DPN (double pointed needles), cables and increases by joining us to knit a pair of fingerless mitts. This online knit-a-long is a four week class that will break down a pattern into parts and give online help with our Knitting Teacher as you go along. You will work on each segment on the week in between and end with a finished product of a new pair of mitts.

THIS IS AN ONLINE CLASS via ZOOM, so you will also need to have a decent internet connection and download the free ZOOM app. Instructions will be emailed before 1st class.

We will be working together on a pair of fingerless mitts in this pattern:
