Thursdays are still the same from 4 till 6 pm. 

PLEASE pass this on & invite friends to join in with us. AND remember to let them know all you have to do is show up the first time. We always have extra looms & yarn on hand to teach whom ever wants to learn.
Hope you can join us...we are sooooo blessed to spend this time together!

God has been so gracious to us, in allowing us to participate in this ministry. Please keep them all in prayer as we enter a new year!

KnitWits on the MOVE

It's always wonderful to share God's provision...and here we go again!

VivaLife has been sooooo nice over the last few years to provide a place for us to meet AND we are sooooo grateful!!! In their new location, things going great for them, thank the Lord!  They are going to need their space now for ministry and growth, so KnitWits are on the move!

And guess what!?!?!?  There is a new coffee shop in McAllen, the Cordoba Cafe.  Edna and her family are new to the Valley and they have graciously opened their doors to us. You know, those people you meet and you feel like you've known them forever? That's them!  

KnitWits met there yesterday for the first time...yummy coffees, lattes and cookies were enjoyed by all!

We will be meeting @ Cordoba Cafe on Thursdays for our regular times.  They are located @ 1303 N. 10th, McAllen, that's @ the northwest corner of 10th and Maple.
And another blessing...Over the last few years there have been several people who have expressed an interest in joining, but just don't have time during their work week.
SO, beginning in January, we will be adding Saturday mornings to our regular schedule! 

Haven't decided yet, but either 1st and 3rd OR 2nd and 4th Saturdays....will get back to you on that!!!

We appreciate your prayers for Eileen, our friend and KnitWit extraordinaire, and her family!  They are moving back to Ohio to be with kids and family up there.  They will also be close to dear KatyLynn. We will all miss Eileen, but it is wonderful to know this will be a special time of blessing, service and love to be with their grandchildren and family!
(Sounds like a KnitWit road trip to me!!! )

Please be praying for Pastor Mike and the teams that are headed to Mexico!  He sends THANKS for all the hats and shawls that we delivered to, the planes are taking things down to the mission in preparation for Christmas!

And please continue to pray for Peggy's team in China...
What blessings we are hearing from them!
You can get updates on that @

Hope you can come join us in our new location, Cafe Cordoba...praying you have a blessed Christmas season!!!

Prayers & Purls~
  And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God...

December is HERE!!!

Hey y'all!!!

Well, today is the day! We will be meeting at VivaLife, as usual and gathering up all those hats and shawls you've worked so hard on!
IF you can make it today, we'd love to have you come join us as we pray for those who are taking these shawls and hats.

☺ Peggy and her team leave today for another trip to China....and yes, she has her space bags with shawls and scarves!

☺ We will take what is brought in today over to Pastor Mike so that it will be ready to go on the planes headed for Durango, Mexico.  They are making a couple of pre-trips to drop off supplies and Christmas items before they go in mid December to the schools.

☺ We have also found a place to start a Saturday KnitWit group! We will be starting this in January, probably 2 Saturdays a month...will post details later, but please be in prayer for this as plans are coming together!

Thank you sooooooo much for all your work, not just with yarn, but especially in prayer for so many.  We are blessed to hear a few stories of how God uses these, but one day He's going to show us the whole tapestry of prayers and it's gonna be cool!!!   I look forward to that with you.

Don't usually include things like this, but thought you would enjoy a real, modern day Good Samaritan story. And remember, all you do in reaching out to those we don't know, in making yourselves available to serve God in His world,  makes a difference....
Well done and many prayers and purls to you all!!!
