A-Pass-Along (Shawl Ministry)

I have a group of women at my Parish who supply meals on an emergency basis to a family in need, such as a death in the family, a birth, a move, illness, etc. We have run errands, babysat, brought groceries, etc. We call ourselves, the “Sonshine Ministries.” I have been brainstorming recently to try and add a new dimension to this ministry, and stumbled on a wonderful website, I have already started to knit my first shawl for a woman recently widowed in our church. What an incredibly tangible way of wrapping someone with God’s love. The website is great, has lots and lots of information, and the instructions for making the shawl are so clear and easy to follow. I haven’t knitted in a zillion years, and fell right back into it. Thought you might want to pass this along.

I love your “blog,” and read it daily. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful tidbits of information with all of us.

In Christ’s love,


Thank you Wylie Hunt for the "Pass-Along"
P.S. - If you don't knit it says at the website: "The shawls can also be crocheted, quilted, woven or machine knitted as well!"
