Father Jerry Knitting


DURING THE FALL OF 2016 Fr. Jerry began his knitting journey during his weekly visits to the Friendship Group. Supported by the ladies, and mentored by Shelly, he began to learn.

By Christmas he had made good progress, to the point where, as a Christmas gift, the group gave him his own needles, bag, and wool.

This is the brief story of his progress and accomplishments in pictures.

In the early days of January, Father finished off his first project. There was much elation on his part, and a lot of satisfaction from the ladies of the Group for his accomplishment.

If you have a scarf, you have to have a hat. This is the second project Father has completed, only within a week of completing the first. Now he is on to other things, including having two projects on the go at the same time.
