Meeting THIS WEDNESDAY, October 13, at 4:30 at Meadows

  Hi all, It's bear month! Come and learn how to knit these sweet stuffed bears. Meeting THIS WEDNESDAY (sorry for the late notice) at the Boulder Library Meadows branch meeting room from 4:30-6:00. You will need to bring worsted weight acrylic yarn and US 5 or 6 (3.75 or 4 mm) double point needles. People usually choose something neutral - white, cream, brown, or gray - for the bear and go colorful with the sweater, but you can use whatever colors you like.  Hard copies of the pattern will be available. Experienced bear knitters will be there to help. You're not required to make a bear! It's a fun challenge and a popular project, but if you prefer, you can always make a simple hat - it's starting to get cold and hats are always needed.  Hope you can make it! And here's a super simple backup hat pattern that works in bulky weight or doubled worsted weight with US 10 or 10.5 (6 or 6.5 mm) needles. It's nice and warm and knits up fast. This is an easy one to knit

Meeting this Wednesday at Meadows library

Hi all,  Sorry for the late notice on this one, but we will be meeting AT MEADOWS LIBRARY (change of location!) this Wednesday, September 15 from 3:00-4:00. Our September project is a hat. You will need a US 7 or 8 (4.5 or 5 mm) circular needle and about 2 ounces of machine washable worsted weight yarn in one or more colors. As you can see from the picture above, this is a good pattern for leftovers!  Hope to see you there!

Blankets donated to Lafayette Police

  From Tywla: Our blankets were presented to the Lafayette Police Chief Bashor and Commander Sellers by Mary Farnan today! (Pictures above taken by Carol Sellers) Mary gave them a copy of the post about the beginning of the project so they would know about the significance of tens in the pattern. We also gave them a card with the names of the ten who lost their lives at the King Soopers.  They were glad to see them clean and individually bagged too. They said these would be used for those in need and they were so appreciative of our efforts. Note from me:  Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project! The police will give the blankets to people in situations where a blanket can provide some comfort. Your squares made 3 large patchwork blankets, and there were 2 smaller blankets as well.  I'm happy to keep the project going. You are welcome to keep making and contributing squares (rectangles), and I'll keep joining them up and passing them on to Twyla and Mary. Please rem

Swirl hat pattern

The pattern for this month's hat is here: Modified Swirl Hat We should also have paper copies available. You'll need about 2 ounces of worsted weight yarn and a 16 inch US 7 or 8 circular needle. Hope to see you at 4:00 today! 

Reminder: meeting Wednesday at 4:00

Just a reminder that we will be meeting this Wednesday, August 18, 4:00 at Harlow Platts park by Viele Lake. The pattern is a modified version of the Swirl Hat, a favorite from Hat Bingo .
