Wildlife Viewing

May 16, 2015

For avid critter-spotters, a few owls and hedgehogs have recently been seen occupying nooks throughout the store.

Squishy Malabrigo makes this knit gift spectacular!

These ready made gifts, including Agatha the red owl knit in Malabrigo Archangel, are locally created by one of our stitch n’ bitch regulars. This knitware from Two Sisters Teddy Bear Co. can also be found at local markets and on Etsy.

We’ve got a bit of Malabrigo love going on in our family. This year Sophie got an Owlet in the Sunset colourway of Mal Worsted…


So many owls! The Owlet pattern by Kate Davies.

On ther go.

Always on the go! Man Needs Hat pattern by Hanna Maciejewska.

We want to share the Malabrigolove by extending our 15% off all in store Malabrigo until the end of this weekend! Come visit us, knit some of this  buttery soft yarn and join our month long knit-a-long!

May MALABRIGO Madness!!!

Some of you might be familiar with March Malabrigo Madness on the Ravelry website. Well, we might be late to the party this year but as we just got an extensive new shipment of this lovely yarn and fibre, we at Baaad Anna’s have decided to make May all about Malabrigo!

First off, starting 11am Saturday May 2nd, we will have all Malabrigo in store 15% off for ONE FULL WEEK! Here’s a sneak peak of all that came in recently…

Fibre, yarn, and more fibre! This week’s shipment includes an extensive selection of Malabrigo Arraryo (sport weight), Worsted, and Nube (100g of merino fibre).

Sail Away

April 27, 2015

Although matching a yarn with a pattern is often half the fun of putting a new project on the needles, sometimes a kit blends all the elements together perfectly. This season, the Sail Shawl from Sweet Georgia yarns is this perfect match.

The Sail Shawl kit from Sweet Georgia Yarns.

A mixture of solid, tonal and subtle glitter yarn creates a large and versitile shawl that can be wrapped in multiple ways. And best of all, the kit comes in five different colourways.

In addition to the reds kit, the Sail Shawl comes in blues, earthtones, purples and greens.

In addition to the red Citrus Sparkler kit, the Sail Shawl comes in a blue Dark and Stormy, earthtoned Caramel Pecan, purple Evening Song and green Shoots and Leaves colourways.

The kit includes 300g of fingering weight yarn that is almost enough for two shawls! And for those on a stash-busting mission, we also carry this gorgeous pattern on it own. Come by and try this beauty on for size!
