Because of Boulder County's current restrictions on gathering, our next meeting will be dropoff only. Come to Harlow Platts Park by Viele Lake in South Boulder between 2 and 3 PM on Wednesday, November 18 to donate any finished items. If you're wondering what to knit, we can always use more hats in any size and wool mittens for children. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
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.
