Reminder: Meeting at 4 and July project

Just a reminder that we're meeting at 4:00 (Wednesday July 14) at Harlow Platts Park by Viele Lake. If you would like a new project for July, we will have a pattern for leg warmers. You will need 2-3 ounces of worsted weight acrylic yarn and US 7 or 8 needles. You can knit them in the round with double points or knit them flat and seam them. Hope to see you there!

Next meeting July 14

Hi all, Our next meeting will be next Wednesday, July 14 at 4:00. We'll meet again at Harlow Platts Park by Viele Lake in South Boulder. Bring a chair and stay and knit! Bring some yarn, and I still have a box of donated yarn, needles, and fiber to share with you that I'll bring along. Hope to see you there!

Meeting tomorrow, headband pattern, and finished blankets

 Hi all, I have three items of business today. First, reminder: we will be meeting tomorrow at 4:00 at the pavilion at Harlow Platts park by Viele Lake in South Boulder. Hope to see you there! Second, the pattern for this month's project, a headband, can be found HERE . Third, we have four finished blankets to give to first responders. I divided your patches into brights and pastels and made a blanket of each. I also had enough of the bulky purple chenille patches to make their own blanket, and Roxana donated a sweet log cabin blanket. Thanks to all who contributed! 

Meeting June 23 at 4:00

 Because May was a big project (hat and vest), we will do just a small project for June - a headband.  We'll meet Wednesday, June 23 at 4:00 at the pavilion at Harlow Platts Park at Viele Lake. Feel free to drop off/pick up or stay and knit and chat. If you want to start the headband, please bring about 2 ounces of machine washable worsted weight yarn and a 16 inch circular needle in US 7 or 8 (4.5-5mm). You might want to bring a folding chair too.  Hope to see you there! 

Email notifications going away

After July, Blogger (run by Google) will stop working with the service that supports automatic email notifications of newposts. That means that even if you've signed up for email notifications on this site (i.e., you are seeing this in your email), you won't get emails after July. I can't commit to maintaining an email list and sending out notifications, so when the emails stop, you will need to visit the website to see updates on meetings, projects, patterns, etc. Maybe set a reminder in your calendar once or twice a month to visit the website and see what's coming up.  In more cheerful and less technical news, I have been busy seaming your blanket squares (rectangles). I am making them into 3 blankets - 2 larger and one smaller, plus there is a fourth blanket that someone made and donated. Remember that these blankets will be donated to local first responders for victim support. You can feel free to keep making squares (rectangles) and I will keep putting them togethe
