Lots of hats!

Thanks to all who came to the February meeting and brought completed projects. We collected 22 hats  (shown below). Our knitters' needles have been busy! If you're still working on yours, that's fine - just bring it to a meeting whenever it's finished. 

This next picture shows 15 adult hats that we just donated to Clinica (thanks Twyla and Linda for taking them over). Winter in Colorado is long and cold, so the practitioners at Clinica are very happy to have something warm to give to the patients they see. And getting something made by hand is special. I hope all the folks who warm their heads with these hats feel they are loved and cared for by their community. Let's keep up the good work!

Reminder: Meeting Tuesday, February 18 at 7PM

Reminder: Boulder Community Knitting will meet this Tuesday, February 18, from 7-8:30 PM at Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins. We are making Roxana's hat with cables, and you will need US 7 (4.5 mm) needles and about 2 ounces of washable worsted weight yarn. A printed copy of the pattern will be provided.

We are an open group - new folks are welcome. If you are not ready for cables, you can always knit a simpler hat - anything that keeps a head warm!

At this meeting I'll get some photos of completed January hats to share here on the website. You do not have to have your January hat finished to come to the meeting. You can keep working on it or start the new one anyway - no judgments here!

Hope to see you there!

Meeting Schedule for 2020

Some sweet kids get new handknit hats at a Clinica visit. 
Hello knitters! Our January meeting went very well, and we got to work on a fun hat pattern in broken rib. We primarily knit for children, but Clinica can also use adult hats, so if you want to make a second hat in an adult size, you can use the same pattern and just cast on more stitches. (I'm doing one with 88 stitches, but any multiple of 4 should work.)

We have our meeting schedule for the rest of the year. Please pay attention as the location, day of the week, and time will change starting in April. We will also be meeting through the summer and in December.

You need to bring your own yarn and needles. You can check bouldercommunityknitting.com for updated information on meetings and projects. All are welcome!

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, January 21 from 7-8:30 PM. We will be meeting at Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins and will be making a mistake rib hat:


Please bring:
2.5 ounces of machine washable worsted weight yarn

Hope to see you there!
