Lazy times in days gone by picnicking at the shore,
everyone is dressed in white except that one woman who invariably wears a
pastel floral print dress, cabled V-neck pullovers with a navy blue line to
set off the neck, big picnic baskets, sun hats, fine china and crystal,
boats with pennants flying, reading, a glass of wine, napping under a tree,
children watching bumble bees in the grass. Dress in your best for
your next picnic with Fiber Dreams' Picnic Perfect shawl.
