16 hats, 4 bears, 4 mittens, and 1 neck warmer

Hi everyone! Here is a very inspiring update from Twyla. Thanks to Linda for this incredible donation of her time and talent!

From Twyla:
Linda Leach has been knitting away despite the temporarily suspended Boulder Community Knitting meetings😊

So, in addition to the masks we've been giving them, today they will also pick up Linda's latest batch of beautiful hats, mittens and bears (and a rogue neck warmer that found its way into the bag lol).

When she came over to show me what she'd made, I thought she'd never get to the bottom of the bag, as she removed item after beautiful item!

A photo shoot ensued and I thought you might like to share some pics with the group.

Clinica Campesina will be picking these up today, along with some masks. They are serving a larger population as other medical facilities are closed and they are taking the overflow of additional patients. I'm sure Linda's items will be much appreciated.

Can't wait to see everyone post COVID!

January meeting and announcing 24 in '24 challenge

 Hi knitters! Our next meeting is this Wednesday, January 10 from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library. In January we will be knitting the hat pictured here. The pattern is below (click on it to enlarge), and you will need 50 g or 1.5 oz worsted weight yarn and US 8 (5 mm) 16 inch circulars and DPNs.  I'd also like to announce a fun challenge for the year: 24 in '24!  A while back, we worked on a project to make blankets for the local police to distribute to comfort people (especially children) involved in difficult and traumatic situations. A great group of people kept this going, and the Lafayette police are still receiving blankets to distribute. They said they can always use more blankets, so let's make that happen. The challenge is this: knit 24 squares in 2024. Each month, I'll share two stitch patterns, ranging from very simple and to more challenging. The patterns are just to keep you interested. You can knit them all, knit just the o

August: Cowlapalooza

Our next meeting will be Wednesday, August 6 from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library.  For August, we have SIX free cowl patterns that you can knit. Pick one or two, or knit them all! They are:  1. Oats by Tin Can Knits 2. Just Try It by Susan Ashcroft 3. Convertible Biking Cowl by Cris Dvic (can be knitted in a solid color, no image) 4. Cable and Seed (Giselle adapted my hat pattern from a few months ago to a cowl) 5. Simple Yet Effective by Tin Can Knits 6. Mistake Rib Cowl by Purl Soho You can go to the links above or pick up a printed copy at the August meeting. All of the patterns use worsted weight yarn, and you should generally be fine with US 7 or 8 (4.5-5 mm) 16 inch circular needles. If you don't have enough of one color, you could colorblock or stripe and use up some leftovers. In addition, we received a large yarn donation from Sister Carmen, so come and stock up for future Community Knitting projects! Hope to see you there. 

April cables (or not)

Our next meeting will be this Wednesday, April 12, from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library. Our project is a child's hat that you can make with or without cables. You'll need about 2 ounces of worsted weight yarn, US size 7 or 8 (4.5-5mm) 16 inch circular and double point needles, a cable needle if you are working the cable version, and 8 stitch markers, one unique for the beginning of the round. You can find the pattern HERE . Hope you can make it!
