Yes. You do not need to be an expert, but you do need to know the basics (casting on, knit, purl, casting off).We are unable to teach knitting at our monthly knitting circles. If you would like to learn how to knit, visit the Citilights knitting circle at Redeemer. For more information, visit www.redeemer.com.

3. Are there guidelines for submissions?
Hats and scarves should be adult size. Scarves are usually at least five inches wide and forty-five inches long. Hats should be eight to ten inches high and twenty-two to twenty-four inches around. These are guidelines only. As long as the items are warm and adult size, they will be fine. Patterns for hats, scarves, and prayer shawls are available at the Hope for
