Pebble Beach Shawl Knit Along @ Wollhaus on Saturday, August 12, 3:00 – 5:00 pm

Pebble Beach Shawl is a light crescent shaped accessory, perfect for keeping off chilly sea breezes while at the beach. The shawl is knit with one or two skeins of luxury yarn – in a different weight for each size, and is the perfect travel and holiday knitting project.  Instructions are written in a percentage checklist style. Stop by Wollhaus to see two versions:  One in Metalico a silk/alpaca blend and one in Brooklyn Tweed’s Vale. Free event.

Colin Kane @ Ice House on Saturday, August 12, 8:00 pm

Known for his in-your-face style of insult comedy and off-the-cuff crowd work, Kane has described his comedy as an unlikely blend of piercing bite and authentic heart, an R-rated act tackling sex, relationships, race… and everyone who is brave enough to sit in the front row. Tickets: $20

Ice House Comedy Club: 24 N. Mentor Ave., Pasadena
