    "Me First KAL is Fantastic"

    Anne Hanson's Kal's are as relaxing as they are informative. It is so special to be able to knit along for 2 hours with the actual knit ware designer! Anne answers questions in such a way that you feel supported and heard! This group of knitters are so kind and FUN! We share all types of tips and projects and I always learn something at each session. Join us you'll be happy you did!!

    I would have liked more introductions and explanations for the “newbies” the first zoom session.

    I just love these KALs

    I love the sharing and inspiration provided by this group. Most of all I like getting the Anne sharing her knowledge and insights into her designs.
