Can Mark REALLY finish an "8 Hour Baby Blanket" in 8 hours??"
Tuesday, December 18th, from 12:00 - 8:00 PM
Please come by and support this fundraiser 

The gauntlet has been thrown! Mark is calling out his knitting friends to come down and accept the challenge of seeing who can get to the finish line first!
Casting on will begin at High Noon for a blanket from Plymouth's pattern book "8 hour Baby Blankets."  
To make things interesting, really put the pressure on and support some of our favorite charities, pledges will be accepted to benefit United Food Bank and Toys for Tots. Make a pledge of any amount based on what you think he'll get done, then pay the percentage that he finishes.  So, for example: if you pledge $20 or 10 cans or 2 toys and he only completes half of the project, you donate $10 or 5 cans or 1 toy.  Of course Mark believes that you all will pay up in full!

Not busy that day? Come in and knit with Mark. Race him to the finish! If you finish a blanket before him, you will get a fabulous prize!

We'll be having a potluck. Bring a dish  and come join in the fun, (since no one can knit for 8 hours and not eat). 
Holiday Greetings!
