So, when I heard about the church knitting group, I immediately added the dates to my calendar. Tonight was my first time meeting with the group. I was the youngest person there by about 30 years, but it was still a lot of fun. A group of older ladies that hang out regularly have some really interesting conversations (that are not about babies, kids, or husbands).
What I really like is that the group has a goal. Instead of everyone doing their own thing, each person works on prayer shawls based on a symbolic pattern. Once completed, each shawl is blessed and mailed to a person who needs special prayers. I started my first shawl tonight and am really excited about the project.
It is an easy pattern and works up quickly so I may actually complete some projects this year. Won’t that be fun?
