Prayer Shawl Ministry

We get together once a month to crochet or knit these prayer shawls. As we work at home on our projects we pray that the recipient will find peace and solace with these shawls. We have used many patterns; triangles, oblong,lap robes, lacy, heavy. The yarn may be donated or purchased by us. The variety of yarns used have resulted in unique items. We have given them to people who are ill, some recouperating from surgery or illnesses and new mothers celebrating the birth of a child. We have heard back from all we have donated that they have been so comforting. One woman who joined our group had never crocheted before and she is one of our most prolifcate crocheters. My favorite LB brand is Homespun.
Our church has many ministries in which to volunteer. Those of us who do this love to crochet and are blessed to have joined this group that make such wonderful use of our talents.
