Caring and Sharing

Enriched by Giving

I don't belong to a group, but I work from my home on prayer shawls for anyone in need. I belong to the Ministry that Janet Bristow started & have made many shawls in 2 1/2 years. I have used many different types of yarns, including Lion Brand, but make each one different. I have gotten emails & letters from those I have made shawls for & each one of those people says that they feel blessed & comforted by their shawl.

I belong to a knitters forum & have people ask how to go about making shawls. I have told them to go to the Prayer Shawl Ministy website & get info & have recommended the book Knitting Into the Mystery which has been very inspirational for me.

I knit & crochet for other charities & feel honored to help others. I feel my life has been enriched by these projects & will continue to help others as long as I am able to.
