Community Knit & Crochet

Our Community Knitting and Crochet Group is alive and well and meeting on Mardi’s porch!
Our group as well as many others knit red, white, & blue prayer shawls for veterans. We forward ours to St Luke’s Hospice. They have told us we aren’t supplying enough to fill the need. So if you feel inclined, please knit a shawl or scarf in our patriotic colors to show your gratitude for our veterans’ service. You can use the shawl pattern below that uses just 3 balls of Encore Worsted and large needles. Or try our newest idea: A prayer square! Its something small enough to hold, but can also be used as a coaster. Takes very little yarn- in Fantasy Naturale or Encore Worsted. Download both patterns FREE here.
