Hats and bears and a check-in

Hello knitters - I hope you are all hanging in there during this pandemic. I hope you're finding knitting to be a comfort and a distraction. I have a few finished items to share with you today.

Here are some fun and colorful hats from Sue...

and a fantastic table full of bears from Linda!

I sincerely hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and in good spirits.

Please send photos of finished Community Knitting projects to for me to share with the group. (If you already sent me something and it didn't make it onto the blog, that is my Swiss cheese brain - just resend please!) 

Knit on!


  1. This is a wonderful group to find - I spent years doing community knitting at Shuttles and Skeins and miss it terribly. It seems that you aren't meeting right now - or do you meet online?
    Anyway I'm glad to find you and I'll send pix of my projects!

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!

Reminder: Meeting at Harlow Platts Park Wednesday 4-6

Just a reminder: we will be meeting IN PERSON at Harlow Platts Park (by Viele Lake in South Boulder) from 4-6 on Wednesday. We'll have a spot to drop off finished projects and pick up the new pattern (you'll need to provide your own yarn). Remember we'll also be collecting sweaters for the refugee project. If you'd like to stay and knit, please bring a chair or blanket. We'll sit in small groups rather than in one large one. Hope to see you there! 

September meeting and new signup for email notifications

  Hi all,  Our next meeting will be Wednesday, September 14 from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Boulder Public Library Meadows branch. We are making adult-size hats. You can choose from any of your favorite patterns, or you can try this ribbed one ( PATTERN HERE ), which is very stretchy to fit almost everyone. You will need about 2 ounces of machine washable worsted weight yarn and US 7 or 8 (4.5-5 mm) needles (16 inch circular and double points). Email notifications: I'm moving email notifications to Substack, which should fix the problems with people not getting emails before meetings. Everyone (even if you already subscribed) please go HERE to sign up, or you can email me at and I'll sign you up. If you know someone who hasn't been getting email notifications, please forward this on to them. I'll also collect emails at the next meeting for anyone who is having trouble. Upcoming Community Knitting dates: October 12, 2022 November 9, 2022 December 14, 20
