The Spirituality of Knitting - Here is an interesting article about faith and knitting spiritualityofknitting

Here are some examples of my knitting for charity.

Prayer Shawl- on the right is a  beautiful blue shawl, donated by Gina from my local parish at St Pauls and St Marys church Nottingham. This will be packaged and sent to Knit for Peace and could be used as a prayer shawl.

Healing Scarves - my healing scarves have been sent to various refuges in the midlands to assist those who are escaping from domestic violence.

Each scarf has a short note explaining that it is offered as a gift of hope as shown in the picture  'A gift for you'.

Healing Hats and Headbands

I have also been lucky enough to work with MASH (Manchester Action on Street Health) and I been able to supply them with some scarves, hats and headbands, which have all been well received.

‚ÄčKnitting as therapy

I have found that knitting is a wonderful way to relax and create new things.

Some of the charities that I support are as follows: The Mother Bear Project,

Knit for Peace and Threads of Compassion. 


I am looking for help in setting up a knitting ministry here in Nottingham, UK. If you enjoy knitting or would like to learn a new skill and help others in the process, why not contact me on Twitter
