Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

Knit & Kneel

Last winter at the height of the popularity of Fun Fur scarves, several women in our church expressed an interest in learning to knit or brushing up on their old knitting skills.

We formed a small group for the combined purpose of sharing the joys and concerns of our congregation and being in prayer about those things while we knit. We were immediately dubbed "Knit and Kneel".

Each of us will contribute at least one article (scarf, sweater, cap, etc.) for the church. Experienced knitters will contribute more items. Some will go to the mitten tree for an inner city school. Some will go to our church bazaar for sale which then benefit several projects.

We thought that our success in bringing several of our church members together in small groups with "knitting" as the center-piece might be of interest.
