You don’t know how to knit? We’ll show you how. Knit 3, purl 3. That’s it! Easy stitches for the heartening shawls we make for those in need of comfort. Both those who knit, as well as those who receive the shawls, are loved and blessed.
The shawls we make give solace to those who are ill, and bring hope to those who are in despair. After we make a shawl we bless it, and a blessing is included for the receiver. We welcome your loving hands to knit for a good cause: to date we’ve donated over 225 shawls.
Meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 11:00 a.m. in Martha’s Room. Our next meeting is January 11th. For more information, contact Karen Sakura at 310-375-1216.
“Shawls have been made for centuries; they are universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles…” – Janet Bristol
