I have been part of a prayer shawl group for several years. Six or seven membesr of my church get together once a month to knit/crochet and bless finished shawls. We also knit at home to fulfill the number of shawls needed. Recently, a member of our congregation donated a large amount of yarn to the church. Members of the group picked out what they wanted to use and I decided I wanted to use up the odds and ends.
This is only a small portion of the yarn balls and partial skeins I took. And this is what came from it. The shawl is about 20" wide and 60" long with fringe. You can get a lot of knitting done while traveling in a car or watching football playoffs. lol
These prayer shawls are prayed over and given to members and friends of the church who are going through difficult times. They are a form of comfort and a sharing of God's love and our prayers. We even started a tradition of giving white prayer shawls to members of the church who are getting married. They are given as part of their wedding ceremony. Do you belong to a prayer shawl group?
