In this episode Marsha and Kelly talk about the the Northern California Knitters Retreat (#NoCKRs on Instagram for more photos). The FABULOUS and FUN retreat was held at the St. Francis Retreat Center. We had such a great time! Thanks to the organizers and to Duren Dyeworks and Kicks and Giggles for donating the door prizes that we won. Thanks also to Dizzy Blonde Studios, Miss Babs,
We had fun knitting and meeting new friends. We also found treasures in the destash room and made some stitch markers.
The charity for the retreat was Knitted Knockers. Participants donated over 90 of them for women who have had mastectomies.
There was a show and tell of knitwear that led us to yet another discussion of fit! We know we said we wouldn't discuss it again for awhile, but we learned some interesting things by looking at all those sweaters.
After the retreat we enjoyed fabulous burgers at JJ's in San Juan Bautista.
After our conversation about the retreat, I podcast with some feathered co-hosts about some of my upcoming adventures. Subscribe in iTunes.

In this episode Marsha and Kelly have a phone conversation about Marsha's finished knitting projects, both of their current knitting projects, Marsha's new interest in baseball, and the ever-perplexing topic of the fit of a knit garment. The Custom Fit patterns are a huge breakthrough and are teaching knitters a lot, but there are other components of how a sweater fits. For example, the texture of the yarn and what the wearer is comfortable with.
