Isabel, who lives in Ohio but came to a meeting while visiting her daughter Laura, went home and knitted up this box of goodness:

As we face some new COVID-related restrictions over this holiday season and have to hunker down at home more, keep those needles busy and send me photos of your finished Community Knitting projects (to amysantamaria@gmail.com). Sharing them with the group is a nice way to connect when we can't gather in person. If you have sent me photos and I haven't posted them, please send again! I sometimes lose them in my overfull inbox.

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.

You can find the pattern HERE . Hope you can make it!
