I asked one of the ladies to tell me more about them so that I could share about it here. Below is the information she sent.
Our group is called “Knit-Wits” at Putnam City United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City. We started our group in the fall of 2007. We have approximately ten members and meet every other Thursday morning at the Church. We started knitting prayer shawls for our Church members who are hospitalized or in nursing homes or confined to their homes and in need of comfort.
Over the last three years we have made baby caps and blankets for the Infant Crisis Center. We have made hats and scarves, pot holders, hot pads, dish cloths, baby blankets and sold at our Church bazaar in the fall and contributed the money to our Daily Bread food pantry. We have donated knitted and crocheted items to Skyline, a Methodist Mission in Oklahoma City.
Our Church secretary became aware of Threads of Compassion through a television ad she had seen and mentioned it to our group and I contacted you for information. About that time, we were looking for other projects to knit and crochet.
I’m so glad that they found Threads of Compassion OKC and I look forward to future gifts from the “Knit Wits”!
Here are the 20 scarves, packaged and ready to go!
