Shawn has two passions; figure skating and loom knitting. She says that the beauty of loom knitting is that she can give back to the community on her own time and from any location. Hats and prayer shawls are her main donated items, but she also enjoys teaching monthly loom knitting sessions at church.

Favorite looms

Shawn Barrick's favorite looms are driven by the projects that she knits: prayer shawls, baby blankets, Afghans, hats and potholders.
