To knitters who aren’t familiar with prayer shawl knitting, it may seem that a shawl is just a shawl. But there is actually a difference between knitting and giving a shawl and knitting and giving a prayer shawl. Mostly, it’s about intention.

Knitters who are knitting prayer shawls will tell you it’s a different process than simply knitting a garment. It all starts with the intention of the knitter to infuse healing, good thoughts and prayers of protection into the shawl. Prayer shawls are typically prayed over through their process of creation and are also blessed when they are finished before being given to the recipient. This can be done either in a formal ceremony if the shawl is being given by a group affiliated with a church, or the individual who made the shawl may pray over it before giving it away.

Knit & Crochet Group: Wings volunteers invite you to join them in the Wings Library Bring your ongoing knit and crochet projects and /or learn to make chemo caps, prayer shawls and afghans. We will provide some yarn and needles at no cost to you.

*Space is limited. Please be sure to RSVP before attending by calling 901.683.0055 x61087 or email [email protected].
