The Blanket – Handmade Prayers

Prototypes Blanket Bench copy

24 HandMade Prayers become a beautiful Blanket consisting of knitted CareSquares in all shapes and sizes……(yes, all shapes and sizes:-)) and in array of colors and textures.  All the squares are crocheted together and finished with a beautiful crocheted trim around the whole blanket enveloping the warmth of all the squares.

The girls at Prototypes Women’s Center knit these prayers and donated the Blanket to Turning Point Foundation for the homeless.  In gratitude and wanting to be of service and help someone even less fortunate than themselves.

There is a lot of love in each of these squares, along with the courage it takes for these women to conquer something new, the peace and healing that follows when they fall into a rhythm with their hands and their hearts.  The joy and laughter and shared stories that arise when we are in this room together for this one single hour.  All this transcends into the square, and then connecting them all together…all the different women, all the different yarns, all the different colors, all the different shapes and sizes……into one Blanket.
