Meeting THIS WEDNESDAY, October 13, at 4:30 at Meadows

  Hi all, It's bear month! Come and learn how to knit these sweet stuffed bears. Meeting THIS WEDNESDAY (sorry for the late notice) at the Boulder Library Meadows branch meeting room from 4:30-6:00. You will need to bring worsted weight acrylic yarn and US 5 or 6 (3.75 or 4 mm) double point needles. People usually choose something neutral - white, cream, brown, or gray - for the bear and go colorful with the sweater, but you can use whatever colors you like.  Hard copies of the pattern will be available. Experienced bear knitters will be there to help. You're not required to make a bear! It's a fun challenge and a popular project, but if you prefer, you can always make a simple hat - it's starting to get cold and hats are always needed.  Hope you can make it! And here's a super simple backup hat pattern that works in bulky weight or doubled worsted weight with US 10 or 10.5 (6 or 6.5 mm) needles. It's nice and warm and knits up fast. This is an easy one to knit
