I am on the Prayer Shawl Message Board. My church is so small that I don't think we could get a group together. I usually just make them on my own and give them to people that I know that need prayers. I have made somewhere near 30 in a year and a half. I mostly use Homespun, but occassionally use worsted when I can't afford the Homespun.
The Homespun seems to be easier to work with when I am crocheting than knitting.
