Join us for a summer knit-a-long! We picked this shawl. It only takes 400 yards of fingering yarn. So, go through your stash and find that gorgeous yarn you just had to buy, but had no idea what to do with. Enjoy the KAL at your leisure over the summer, and be sure to bring your finished (or WIP) shawl to our September meeting.
