Dropoff Wednesday afternoon at Harlow Platts


Have you been busy knitting your bingo hats? Our next dropoff is Wednesday, February 10, from 2-3 at Harlow Platts park. Let's gather a great big pile of hats to give to Clinica. We have plenty of winter left in Colorado and lots of people to keep warm! Remember to snap a photo of your hats before you donate them.

When you complete a bingo, let me know by leaving a comment here or by sending an email to amysantamaria@gmail.com. I mentioned prizes, so here's what I have so far:

I will give anyone who gets a bingo a free copy of my worsted-weight socks e-book (5 patterns) and a scarf pattern I wrote last month. If anyone else has any prizes they'd like to donate (things knitters would like), please let me know. Possibilities: special yarn, knitting notions, knitting books or patterns. For any physical items, I will use a random number generator to select a winner. If it's electronic (a pdf of a pattern you wrote, for example), let me know if you'd like to offer a certain number of copies (I'll use the random number generator), or one to every winner. For physical items, I'll put donor and winner in touch with each other and you can decide if you want to mail or exchange in person. 

This may be a mess, but I think it will work! Trying to inject a little fun since we can't meet in person. Just a few more months until we have some warm weather and can hopefully resume our outdoor meetings!

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
