How Special is Swan's Island?

Hot August Knits

It has escaped no one that it is hot as all get-out outside.  The summer time invokes visions of lazy afternoons hiking and picnicking, sipping cool drinks on the patio and garden fresh foods coming to the table for months on end.  A beautiful thought -- but where is the yarn?

Hot August Knits brings the yarn back into summer by giving you a chance to visit a nearby shop that might be new to you.  Nine shops all along the front range are coming together and offering sales, events, door prizes and new products from August 11 - 26.  Simply visit any of the shops listed below beginning August 11 and pick up your passport.  Each participating shop you visit will stamp your passport.  Completed passports are turned in to any participating shop at the end to be entered for the Grand Prize drawing.  No purchase is necessary to have your passport stamped or receive the Grand Prize.  Please contact any of the shops listed for more information.  You can also join the Ravelry Group or follow everything on Facebook.
