What a great ministry, I would love to start one at my church, but first I have to get people interest in knitting beside me! :thinking:
I know what you mean about homespun, it's not my favorite yarn either. I have a blanket that I am working on my for my DD, and I took with my this past weekend so I could work on it. (It's from the Lion Brand Website the Country Cousins Blanket that I am making larger with more squares.) I didn't get very far! It's really not that hard, only squares in garter stitch!
Good for you getting your shawl done!
