The Tiniest Shawls

Our church started a knitting/crocheting group a little over a year ago in order to teach women these skills. I got involved because I have been knitting for about 50 years (Mom taught me at age 8) and I was anxious to share this skill with others ( I had taught many to knit while in college).

Using Cotton-Ease, we start them on simple hat/bootie sets that are given to a local Care Net Pregnancy Center. We just gave them about 40 sets last week. We have also made 8 lap robes for nursing homes and one lady in our group has made about six prayer shawls for missionaries. After praying for yarn to be donated, the Lord provided and we are in the process of making sweaters/booties/hats/mittens for children in orphanages in Romania or used for outreach by missionaries.

Our group meets once a week and many nights we include a devotional or have a prayer time. It is a great time of fellowship and "stitching" is SOOOO relaxing.
