Knitting and Prayer Shawls

I'm also into knitting. The last year or two a friend of mine got me into prayer shawls. So I've been into the knitting prayer shawls. Basically the idea is that you say prayers while you are making/knitting or crocheting the shawls and then you intentionally give them away to people who are sick or have some kind of health problem or in need in some way. You can either do it indivdually like I do or do it with a church group. For more info on prayers shawls check out
Here's a couple of pics of me showing off some of the prayer shawls that I have made.
