    Be Comforted – handknitted prayer shawls for consolation and courage

    Hand knitted shawls are enjoying a huge resurgence in popularity. Worked with love and compassion, in luxurious yarns, using stitches of delicate lace or bold cables, shawls say 'be comforted' at a time when courage is most needed against life's pitfalls. The programme will cover basic shawl shapes, circular, triangular, and oblong. Techniques will include lace, Portuguese knitting, and demonstrate how knitting and meditation work together. Participants must be confident knitters. The course is fast paced and is not suitable for beginners.
