  • It is helping towards a very good cause
  • It was fashioned by lots of lovely knitters like yourself
  • You can win it by donating any amount to Breast Cancer Care

If you don’t believe us you can see it for yourself. The Blanket will be proudly displayed at of All the Fun of the Fair for a whole week before the Knit Crawl.
