Retreat center to host day of knitting


WHEATLAND — A day of knitting, fellowship and prayer, “Knit One, Pray Too!,” will take place at Our Lady of the Prairie Retreat Aug. 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Participants should bring size 11 or 13 knitting needles, three six-ounce skeins of yarn (or a project in progress), and join others as they create a prayer shawl, a scarf or a special gift for someone in need of comfort. People will knit and pray together, share “yarns” of their individual journeys, and enjoy the beauty of The Prairie. 

Target audience is all knitters, including beginners, women and men.

Cost is $15 per person, which includes lunch. For more information or to register, contact Barbara Gross at  (563) 336-8414 or e-mail
