Our Lent Knitting Journey is back again for 2022, following a pattern for a cushion cover designed by our very own Lyn. Weekly emails throughout Lent will provide a set of daily knitting instructions (or ‘clues’) and specially written meditations for each day. The design of the cushion cover (which will be completed by Easter and can be sewn up/finished on Easter morning) is a surprise but will only use simple knit and purl stitches, so should be achievable by knitters of all abilities.
After casually posting the information about our new Lent Knitting Journey on some national Methodist Facebook groups we have had hundreds of people from all across the country and beyond signing up to join us. Many have told stories of struggling with their faith or mental health, recovering from chemotherapy, feeling isolated etc and being very excited to have a project like this to work on. It has been a humbling experience and we can’t wait to get going on our shared journey. Thank you to Lyn and Helen for keeping on top of all the admin and sending individual replies to many of the people who have signed up.
