Fires in Boulder County

My heart is breaking as I see the devastation from the fires in Boulder County. Thinking of our friends in Louisville and beyond. Please reach out to me personally ( if there's any way I can help, even if you just need someone to talk to. If anyone knows of volunteer opportunities, please feel free to share them here in the comments. 

Friends who are displaced, who may have lost your homes, know that your community is here to support you and get you through this.


  1. Giselle is working with the Sister Carmen Community Center on helping those impacted by the fires. She asked me to put out a message they could use hats, mittens, blankets, sleeping bags and gift cards. More information is available at their website: You can drop off donations directly or contact Giselle at and make arrangements to drop them off at her house in Lafayette. Thank you!

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! 

April cables (or not)

Our next meeting will be this Wednesday, April 12, from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library. Our project is a child's hat that you can make with or without cables. You'll need about 2 ounces of worsted weight yarn, US size 7 or 8 (4.5-5mm) 16 inch circular and double point needles, a cable needle if you are working the cable version, and 8 stitch markers, one unique for the beginning of the round. You can find the pattern HERE . Hope you can make it!
