Casting On Group
August 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every month that begins at 10:00am on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely
Casting On–several St. Paul’s parishioners are forming a knitting and crochet group. We have a LOT of yarn to work with as well as needles and could pair beginners with more experienced knitters and crocheters. Knitting is good for you! Repetitive gestures in knitting and crocheting can bring on a calm state, like with yoga or meditation. Saying a little prayer to comfort the future recipient of a blanket knits love into our work (some churches have a “prayer shawl” ministry). Our purpose is to make items that could be donated to several different causes: baby blankets for preemies and/or babies baptized at St. Paul’s, shawls for nursing homes or the like, and shawls or throws for LGBT young runaways, and new projects as needed. Let’s meet on the first Saturday of the month at 10 am. Knitters and crocheters of all levels are welcome! Contact Christine Sheppard with questions 210-620-5292
