Knitting Group members knit (or crochet) prayer shawls (to comfort parishioners in illness or grief), as well as prayer bears (for children), military helmet liners (for soldiers), preemie caps (for preemies at University Hospital), bereavements shawls for Christ Hospital, afghans for Habitat for Humanity and more. These items are then prayed over and blessed before delivery. To create a prayer shawl take about 15 hours, depending on the size of needles and yarn. It is a very meaningful experience, as the knitter prays for the person who will receive the shawl – even though the recipient is unknown to the knitter. Those who can meet during the knitting time share knitting and fellowship, but all work can be done at home. All are welcome; there is no minimum time or piece commitment required and we’ll even teach you how to knit. We meet to knit together once monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 1 pm.
