Make-a-Wish: Natalie's Knitting Challenge

August 03, 2020
Join Natalie's challenge and make her wish come true!

Natalie was diagnosed with lymphoma when she was  in 7th grade. She was treated at Lucille Packard Hospital at Stanford. During her treatment, she picked up knitting to pass the time. Natalie just turned 15 yrs old at the end of July and and just completed her last chemo treatment. 

Natalie's wish through Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area is to brighten the lives of patients at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, and to thank her caregivers who helped her beat cancer.

Knit or crochet a teenager- sized hat. We have loads of free hat patterns here. If the hat is sized for an adult, you can use a thinner yarn and smaller needles to make it slightly smaller. 

Great choices of super soft, machine wash/dry yarn include Comfort,  Comfort Chunky.Cherub Chunky, and Cherub Bulky.   

Share photos of your hats on social media using #KnittingwithNatalie and tag Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford for your chance to win prizes.

Bring your hats in to the shop by August 28 and we'll ship them out to Make a Wish Greater Bay Area.

If you'd like to ship them yourself, the address is:
Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area 
1333 Broadway #200
Oakland, CA 94612

All hats will be donated to the Teen Health Van, a service within Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. 

Let's help make Natalie's wish come true!

Staff KAL - Weekender Light

July 14, 2020

Finished!

We all agree that miles of stockinette in the round made for a relaxing knit. We're thinking of making second ones.  Here's a few changes we made or may make for a second project 

- Diane used a larger needle size than recommended and did not use the larger needle for the sleeves

- We found that the neckline was a little tight. For a second one - we may use the same needle size for the neckline as the body to loosen it up.  

_______________________________________________________

We're making the perfect year-round sweater for our temperate SF weather - Weekender Light by Andrea Mowry! 

Update July 21, 2020

We're all making good progress on this super relaxing knit! 

Sonja:

Laura:

Diane:

_____________________________________

Sonja is using Cumbria Fingering in Dertwenwater - a great color! 

Laura is using Malabrigo Sock in Playa - so lovely! 

Diane is using her new favorite yarn - Cascade 220 Fingering in color 9619 Ember Heather. She really likes the thickness - right between lace and fingering. You can't beat the price too!

 

We enjoy making the same project together!  It's fun to see how different yarns work with the pattern and learn hints from each other.  We'd love it if you would join us!

Interested in making one? You can snag the pattern here and check out fingering weight yarn here.
