Kelie's excited about her son's 13th birthday and Spring Break. She had an amazing time at her spinning retreat this past weekend.

Nancy launched the store knitalong - The pattern is from Knitting Pure & Simple #994 V Neck Neck Down Cardigan for Women, using Noro Kibou is 24% Cotton/34% Wool/12% Silk and has 297 yards in the skein. Nancy talks about a sweater using Fibonacci numbers to calculate stripe height on the body.

The Knit Surfers discuss different types of increases and decreases. They also discuss the different way patterns are written. A good tip from Nancy is to use your own cheat sheet as a guide when figuring out pattern stitches while decreasing or increasing at the same time.

Nancy is currently writing up a very cute pattern using Lang Ella yarn. Kelie has cast on and is having fun working on it.

Kelie has been working on getting a balanced 2-ply yarn and has succeeded! She has spun Anzula Stargazer fiber into a beautiful skein that came off the niddy noddy balanced and beautiful.
