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

These are my January hats. The brown one is adult size, with 88 stitches cast on and knit a bit longer.  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!
