I love to make Prayer Shawls. Sometimes, while I am knitting, I know who the shawl is going to and I am able to pray for that person's special needs. Other times, I do not know who will receive the shawl just yet. I like to have one on hand ready to go when needed. Then I pray to God to bless the person He has intended to receive the shawl. If you are interested in knitting prayer shawls go to http://www.shawlministry.com/ . If you want to know more about knitting or crocheting prayer shawls I highly recommend the book Knitting into the Mystery. There are so many people who are in need.
I also like to make Prayer Shawl Pins. My grandniece, Samantha, helped me make the one above.
