Scarf pattern and dress warmly

It's going to be chilly, but we're still on for today 4:00 at Harlow Platts Park/Viele Lake pavilion. Dress warmly, bring a chair, and we'll see how long we can tough it out - it might be a short meeting! Do use your judgment - if a wintry meetup is not for you, you are welcome to just drop off any finished items and head back somewhere warm, and we'll look forward to a more comfortable meetup in May. 

Our April pattern is the oddball scarf. You will need a 24 inch US 9 or 10 (5.5 or 6 mm) circular needle and odds and ends of worsted weight yarn totaling about 2 ounces. You can pick up a printed pattern or download one here:

There is plenty of opportunity to play and have fun with this scarf - change gauge, hold yarns double, use up small scraps and leftovers, play with color and stripes, throw in some crazy fuzzy or sparkly yarns. Enjoy, and hope to see you tonight!

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
