Prayer Shawls

I did my research on internet after I heard the words "prayer shawl". I was so inspired and felt that this was my calling. After a visit with our priest to explain what I felt would be fantastic needed ministry he was in total agreement and even admitted that he wanted to learn to knit so he could participate and he has. So St. Dunstan's Episcopal church now has seventeen regular members to knit prayer shawls, 24" x 60" using knit 3 pearl 3 as their pattern, opposite on each row. Mainly, they are using Homespun yarn. We have completed two shawls in a very short time. They will be distributed to parishioners who need prayers. Presently, we are meeting twice a week so that we can get beginners started. Once in the evening, once in the daytime.
If you watch TV than gather up the needles and yarn and get busy and don't waste the time just being a couch potato.
