Limbering These Old Fingers

After having met Janet Bristow (Prayer Shawl Ministry co-founder) I felt moved to bring the concept to my church. Several women have begun knitting shawls to give to expectant mothers.

We began mid March. Two shawls are almost complete. Our small group will continue to produce shawls to give away to those needing the love that something handmade and warm can bring.

The time spent knitting together Homespun yarn into a shawl filled with prayer and blessings is so special. It has been years since I have had my knitting needles out - this is such a worthy way to limber my arthritic fingers!

Thanks, Lion Brand Yarn, for colorful, easy care yarns for this new "ministry" of mine!
