Make-up meeting March 15 2:30-4

First, I just want to say I'm sorry if you made the trek in to the library yesterday to find out that our meeting was canceled. I don't have any way to push notifications - the emails from the website are sent by google with some unknown latency, and I don't maintain an email list. I never thought about weather cancellations. before, so from here on out, if there's inclement weather, I'd recommend taking a look at the website (bouldercommunityknitting.com) before heading out to make sure it's still on.

Second, we're going to do a make-up meeting for March on Tuesday, the 15th, from 2:30-4:00 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library. You can just come by and drop off finished items/pick up the new pattern(s), or you can stay and knit, just like a regular meeting. I hope you can make it! 

 If you're itching to cast on March's project, you can find links to the patterns in THIS POST.

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
