September Meeting

We all really enjoyed Nancy Bates, author of Knitting the National Parks, who spoke about her hats and her design inspiration and process. She brought all 63 of her National Parks hats for us to see and touch. The hats all had beautiful patterns and colors of yarn from “Indie” yarn dyers.  For more information, patterns and kits, go to or  

Nancy’s next projects are the state parks and other natural highlights of California and more seasonal/holiday beanies.
