Next meeting July 13: Mittens

 Our next meeting is Wednesday, July 13, from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library. We will be making Chunky Mittens with a Seed Stitch Insert provided by Diana. You can find the pattern HERE

You'll need to bring 3 1/2 ounces of bulky weight wool yarn and double point needles in US 9, 10, or 10.5. 

 If you're more of a novice knitter or you just want a simple project, we can always use more hats. Feel free to dig into the archives to find a hat pattern that suits you.

Remember that Judy from Shuttles will be at the meeting this month with some Encore yarn for sale (it's a favorite for charity projects). 

Hope you can make it!

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
