I started knitting about a year ago after a...
Created By: Kristen Joubert

I started knitting about a year ago after a lesson from my grandmother. I fell in love with it and made several scarves right off the bat. My church formed a knitting group recently and I joined with such excitement. We knit prayer shawls for people who are ill, going through difficult times, or in times of celebration.

I began my first shawl with no one in particular in mind and then about a week into it I realized who I wanted to give it to. A coworker recently lost her husband and she and her daughters have been having a hard time dealing with the loss. I finished the shawl in about a month and presented it to her about a week ago. She was so appreciative, and surprised! I gave it to her on a Friday b/c I wanted her family to have it for the weekend. She came to my office on the next Monday to let me know how much use she and her daughters got out of it over the weekend and how much they love it.

I am so happy that my knitting was able to provide comfort to someone when they need it most.
