Prayer Shawl Ministery,+Knifty Knitters

I have been knitting since I was 21 yrs old.(I'm now 49) A few yrs ago I was in a local bookstore when I saw a book called Knitting into the Mystery. I felt God calling me to buy it. At the time a dear elderly friend had a growth in her mouth which later turned out to be cancer.I bought the book (even though I had enuogh knitting books to last a lifetime. I showed the book to our co-pastors and said I think we should start a group in our church , well they had a woman from thier former church come to speak to a group of women and the Prayer Shawl Ministery took off like a dove in flight. Many people got shawls and they really loved them. Sadly though my friend passed away about 4 months after the grop started meeting. A few months later a much loved member of our church got a shawl because she had not been feeling well. She got better but she lost the heat in her house so she grabbed her shawl and put it around her shoulders and she was warm. Sadly too she died a year later and her husband got a prayer shawl also.
Last April I joined the knifty knitters group at a local hospital. They knit baby blankets , red blankets,afghans etc.fro thier patients. THANK YOU LION BRAND FOR YOUR PRETTY COLORS OF HOMESPUN YARN Betty Smith
