We're meeting outside September 16!

 Hi all,

I hope you've been holding up okay over this unusual summer. I have good news - we are going to meet in person again! We'll keep this as safe as possible - outdoors and distanced, with face coverings - but we understand that some high-risk folks may need to stay away. 

We will be meeting September 16 from 4-6PM at Harlow Platts park by Viele Lake in South Boulder. Some of us will try to snag a picnic table where you can drop off your finished projects. Please bring a camping chair or blanket to sit on and wear a face covering. If you'd just like to come by, drop off your projects, say hello, and head out, that's fine! And if you'd like to stay and knit a while, we will probably be sitting in small groups rather than one large group.

Please remember to bring any finished projects for Community Knitting and also any sweaters you've made for the Wales refugee project so that Eleri can send them on. If you'd like to contribute towards books for Clinica (which we'll send at the holidays), we will be collecting cash donations for that as well. We will be giving out copies of a hat pattern, and I will also post the pattern here.  And I'll share some links to free hat patterns that should help keep your needles busy this fall. Stay tuned for that.

I'll leave you with some photos of some hats from Laurels and SO MANY bears from Linda! These are going to make a lot of kids happy.

  1. Hi,
    I just subscribed, and would love to come to the meeting September 16 even though I'll be brand new. I'm just starting back knitting and hope to be contributing to your 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! 

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
