Hope you have been able to do some knitting with the weather changing to much cooler.

Another place to drop off your completed hats is Ingelbretsen's at 1601 East Lake Street, Minneapolis.

Regarding the day of charity knitting at StevenB's, Saturday, Nov. 17 from 11:00 - 3:00 p.m. This is going to be a potluck lunch instead of a catered lunch which was stated in the last post. Please bring a dish to share.
Enjoy all the great colors fall brings.

It appears that knitters have been busy working on hats, as we have close to 200 on hand and quite a few scarves.  There are many variations to the basic Watch Cap pattern.  A hat that I recently received called "Classic World War II Watch Cap" has a beautiful star finish on top of the hat.  If you Google, "Classic World War II Wtach Cap", you will be given a Ravelry site for the pattern....scroll down and choose the direct download...pdf option.  This might be a pattern you'd like to try.

HATS ARE DUE BY MID-DECEMBER. Drop off sites:  Steven B's Yarn Garage on 34th and Chicago,
Linden Hills Yarn Shop at 2720 W. 43rd St. and First Universalist Church at 3400 Dupont Ave. S
