Calling all fans of knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, sewing, and embroidery!
This month's Needlecraft Meet-up will be dedicated to knitting prayer shawls for the UCSF community.
The ZSFG Palliative Care Program is knitting prayer shawls for patients as part of the Comfort Care Cart. The word palliative comes from the Latin palliativus meaning "to cloak" and so these shawls symbolically cloak those who are suffering. Volunteers don't have to stick to this pattern - you can feel free to use your creativity and work with what you have (time, yarn type, etc).
Attend the monthly Needlework Meet-up to start knitting a shawl and come back to continue to knit anytime the Makers Lab is open.
