vBRAY continued from page 5 Dona Steffen, Tres Dendinger and Emily Lincoln are part of the knitting club that gathers at Bray’s store. They welcome anyone interested to join their group or to take part in one of their project knitting days. They usually plan their knitting projects on a Saturday, sometimes a Sunday. If participants buy yarn and needles to complete the project, Bray will often give them a discount. Steffen, Dendinger and Lincoln enjoy the knitting group. Lincoln, not present for our interview, came up with the idea to start the group. “It’s fun to be together and it’s for a good cause,” Dendinger states. Steffen adds, “It’s camaraderie. It’s just fun. We enjoy each other’s company.” Bray posts her project dates on her website and at the entrance of her store. Her website, www.eweknitit.com, and her Facebook page at Ewe Knit It have pictures of previous projects completed and dates of upcoming projects. Though her knitting shop and projects keep her busy, Bray enjoys watching her youngest son play band at USD and she partakes in several wine clubs with her husband. Her two daughters now reside in Yankton and her oldest son lives in Baton Rouge. She likes to see those that she’s taught to knit become regular members and would love more members in her knitting group. “Anyone is welcome to come,” she smiles warmly. She has various check out... hervoiceonline.com 20vHERVOICEvNOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2017 patterns, whether the knitter uses double pointed needles or not. Ewe Knit It is open Monday-Friday from 10-6 PM and she stays open even later on Tuesdays, for her knitting group. Saturday’s hours are 10-5 PM. She advises that, because she is the only person in the store, some days she might step out for an hour. Bray’s kindness provides a gentle touch to those who need it the most, serving as an excellent example of how you can use your talents to help others and continue to make this community one of the best! vBy Julie Eickhoff Bridges To Hope Counseling Services, LLC 1101 Broadway, Yankton • 605.665.4488 Providing support and interventions for coping with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, chronic and terminal illness.
