    This past summer we went to Watkins Glen, NY for a Hot Wheels event. We go there just about every summer to hike at the gorges. I go along willingly only because there's a real, live yarn store just a couple of blocks from the park :laugh: When we went, I bought the most GORGEOUS lace weight...

    I've started crocheting again, using yarn out of my stash. I thought I'd try projects to help me keep warm with my new lower thermostat setting. I started with a shawl and will probably do an afghan next (I actually have yarn set aside for a quilt style afghan). This one used the nicest yarn...

    I don't know how to knit of crochet but one of the ladies at my church started a prayer shawl ministry that I thought was a great idea to share. The ladies make a shawl and while they make it they pray. When they are done it goes to someone that is going through a tough time. They wear it while...

    I don't knit or crochet but found this Prayer Shawl Ministry site and thought it was really interesting. It is preachy, just a lovely idea and a nice way to give hope to someone who is ill, etc.

    I made this for my friend too. It is done in baby yarn with a Q hook. I just did Scs to start, then Dcs in the middle and back to Scs at the end. I wanted it to give some privacy but be airy too.

    I have seen a lot lately on some crocheting websites about prayer shawls. The idea has intrigued me, so this morning I talked to our pastor about using this in conjunction with our Stephen Ministry group. (Stephen Ministry is a group of lay people who walk beside someone during times of illness...
