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!

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 . I think it uses about 2 ounces of worsted weight yarn, preferable something machine washable, and a US 7 or 8 16 inch circular needle. Hope to see you there!

Special project: knitting for refugee children

Hi knitters, I hope you are all staying healthy and relatively sane in this unusual and scary situation we find ourselves in. Are you stuck at home with some extra yarn and extra knitting time? Eleni brings us a special project from her mother's knitting group in Wales. They are knitting sweaters (or jumpers as they say in the UK) for refugee children in Europe. Roxana is generously donating one of her patterns for us to use for free, and I will post it here along with a photo of a sample next week. It will take a little more than 600 yards of worsted weight yarn, so go dive into your stash and see what you can come up with. Here is some information about the project, from Stiwdio 3 , the yarn shop in Cardigan, Wales that is organizing it: From the home of the giant Cardigan cardigan, we are reaching out to our incredible community and setting a challenge to produce 2020 children’s jumpers or cardigans for refugee children throughout Europe.  The inspiration for the project

Hat BINGO for Clinica

Hello knitters, Clinica needs more hats! Our contact there told us that they handed out the last batch of hats we gave her in a matter of hours! So we need to make some more hats. To make this a fun challenge, I thought we could try a game of Hat BINGO.  Click here for your card: GET A BINGO CARD You'll see 24 squares, each with a pattern name, and one free space in the middle. To get a bingo, knit 5 hats - all the patterns in a row (across, down, or diagonal). If you use the free space, you still need to knit 5 hats, but one can be any pattern you like - on the card, a duplicate, or some other pattern or improvisation you like. Snap a photo of your 5 hats for proof of your bingo - there will be prizes!  I've included a few patterns we've shared on the website, and the rest are all free patterns on Ravelry. Many of them are adult size, but you can usually size down for a kid's hat (leave a comment if you need guidance on sizing a pattern down). Or just make an adult siz
