Summer's Day Knit & Lunch
Saturday, July 28 10am – 4pm
Join us for a beautiful summer's day knit and lunch at Shadow Lawn Inn (3180 Rothesay Road)
(see map)

Project - the stunning Wingspan shawl.
This shawl has been getting a lot of interest from knitter's everywhere. It can be knit in an array of yarns and colours and uses only 1 ball of regular sock or lace yarn.
It's fun, easy and lovely to wear.

What a nice way to spend a summer day.
Gather up some knitting friends and come out for a relaxing day in the beautiful surroundings of the Shadow Lawn Inn.

Price: $60 plus materials (1 ball should do it) includes a beautiful lunch and shawl instruction. Purchase your yarn for this project at any Cricket Cove shop - we have something for everyone. Call Benjamin's Books at 848-1234 to register.
