Blankets donated to Lafayette Police

  From Tywla: Our blankets were presented to the Lafayette Police Chief Bashor and Commander Sellers by Mary Farnan today! (Pictures above taken by Carol Sellers) Mary gave them a copy of the post about the beginning of the project so they would know about the significance of tens in the pattern. We also gave them a card with the names of the ten who lost their lives at the King Soopers.  They were glad to see them clean and individually bagged too. They said these would be used for those in need and they were so appreciative of our efforts. Note from me:  Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project! The police will give the blankets to people in situations where a blanket can provide some comfort. Your squares made 3 large patchwork blankets, and there were 2 smaller blankets as well.  I'm happy to keep the project going. You are welcome to keep making and contributing squares (rectangles), and I'll keep joining them up and passing them on to Twyla and Mary. Please rem

Swirl hat pattern

The pattern for this month's hat is here: Modified Swirl Hat We should also have paper copies available. You'll need about 2 ounces of worsted weight yarn and a 16 inch US 7 or 8 circular needle. Hope to see you at 4:00 today! 

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!
