KNIT-INS AT FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, FORT COLLINS, COLORADO
Created By: Elva Alden

In the summer of 2006 my husband and I were visiting my birth state of Maine. Friends in three different locations had either recently received shawls or were knitting them. Good idea I thought! That fall my husband unexpectedly passed away. During my grief it occurred to me that this would be a worth while ministry to begin at First Church.

The idea was enthusiastically embraced by the United Methodist Women, and by March of 2007 we were off and roaring with our Lion Brand yarns. In September we dedicated 75 shawls at the altar on Women's Sunday. It was a lovely touching sight to behold!



We have monthly KNIT-INS, enjoying much camaraderie and fellowship mid busy clicking and clacking of needles. What blessings we have all received in this outreach!
