Grace-St. Paul United Methodist Church in Jim Thorpe is a new church but women there have been knitting or crocheting prayer shawls since 2005.
Started by Pat Rowe, the group makes the shawls for ailing or needy people.
The oldest knitter is Anna Moore of MapleShade Meadows Assisted Living Center in Nesquehoning, who just turned 105 years of age.
She has knitted hundreds of the shawls.
Through Nov. 16 of this year, 69 shawls have been given out.
