October meeting, books, and LOTS of yarn

 Hi everyone and happy fall!

Our next meeting will be Wednesday, October 12, from 3:00 to 4:30 at  the Boulder Public Library Meadows branch.

We had a very large donation of yarn to our group, and Giselle will be bringing it to the October meeting. Come prepared to take some (or a lot!) home with you for your Community Knitting projects!

Our October project is mittens, pattern HERE. You will need bulky weight WOOL yarn (wool is best for mittens, doesn't have to be machine washable) and US 9, 10, or 10.5 (5.5-6.5 mm) double point needles, plus a cable needle (or extra DPN). If you don't have bulky weight, you can hold together two strands of DK weight, or a strand of worsted and a strand of fingering weight, or whatever combination gets you something like bulky. If you don't have wool, or mittens are just not your thing, we can always use more hats.

We are also accepting new or gently used children's books to include with our holiday donations, so feel free to bring some to the October or November meetings. 

If you are not on the email list, or you know someone who would like to be added to the email list, the link to sign up is HERE.

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!
