Comfort & Joy: Keep on Stitchin’

Snow? Ice? High winds? Freezing temperatures? We say, “Hah! Nothing can negate our knitting needles! No weather shall halt our hooks!”

Okay, that may be a little overly dramatic, but we have been cranking out yarn creations like crazy! We are currently overflowing with prayer shawls and lap blankets, so have been able to produce at least a dozen hats for the International Seafarers’ Center and for newborns at Mercy Hospital. We’ve even gotten a head start on scarves for this fall for Meals on Wheels! Could we be looking at 250 for this year? Maybe 300?

As always, we remind you that you can help even if you aren’t able to come and stitch with us by making a scarf (or 2 or 7) at home when the time is good for you! All scarves should measure 5″ – 7″ wide and 60″ – 72″ inches long. They need to fit in gallon size Ziplock bags. (We provide the bags.)

If you would like to receive a prayer shawl (either for yourself or for someone else) please contact us.

We will next meet to stitch on Saturday, April 13th at 10:00am in the Fellowship Hall at St. Thomas’ on Providence Road. Interested but just a beginner? No problem. We’ll show you how!

Feel free to contact Beth at bcrosby.saintthomas@gmail.com with any questions.
