We are a group of women who get together on the first and third Tuesday of each month to talk and knit together. We call ourselves the Knit Wits, which was Betty’s idea. Some of us are part of the Emmaus program, some are long-time community members and some are new friends. We meet at the Waves Coffee Shop on Kingsway close to Patterson Skytrain Station at 1:30 until 2:45. We enjoy their good coffee and lattes.
The knitted nativity set was Melina’s idea. She had a pattern at home which she shared with the group some of us made sheep and some made the wise man. In total we knit three wise men, one Joseph, one Mary, two baby Jesus, one angel, four shepherds, eleven sheep, one manger with a pillow and even a blanket! We unveiled the nativity set at the Advent Day of Prayer and now it is in the Emmaus Centre.
We are proud of our project.
