Knarthex Knitters

The Knarthex Knitters usually get together during Wednesday Night Live for fellowship in knitting and crocheting, sharing knitting tips, patterns, yarn, and joys and concerns of members of the church family.  We have a wonderful, yet relaxing time in the Bride's Room/Social Concerns classroom in the church

Many times it is not convenient for some of our members to meet, and we would encourage you to knit or crochet in your home.  A good time to knit at home is in front of the television while watching your favorite programs or sports events.

 

Patterns for a prayer shawl for our members who need the warmth and comfort of knowing that their brothers and sisters in Christ do care for them, pray for them, and give them a tangible gift of that love in concern for their illness or loss of a loved one, can be found at:.
