The Knit Surfers greet March with enthusiasm, lots of fun things going on this month.
Kelie finished her Love Scarf out of the Bright Fuschia Plymouth Encore yarn her son gave her for Christmas. She’s starting her second Labyrinth sweater using Forbidden Woolery Gluttony yarn which is 100% Superwash Merino.
Nancy’s working on square #6 of the Great American Aran afghan. The Great American Aran Afghan knitalong is currently going on at the store. Knitters are making one block a month and anyone can join in. This knitalong is dedicated to Caryl Nelson, there are over 40 knitters joining in on this wonderful tribute to a beautiful woman. Nancy is using Galway in blue and green heathered colors.
A new knitalong is starting at the store on Sunday for a really fun, easy pattern on Knitty.com. The sweater is called Corinne by Crystal Erb Junkins. Sue Smith will be guiding the group with her specially made worksheets for alterations.
Nancy and Kelie had fun when Steven Be and Stephen West came to the North Coast Knitters Guild. They estimate that there were over 300 people that came to hear them speak. Kelie brought her puppy baby and he slept the whole time. The Steph(v)ens have a reality show you can watch at www.stevenbe.tv.
The Knit Surfers find the Pantone Spring 2016 colors not to their taste this season.
