Comfort Prayer Squares

I live in Massachusetts and volunteer at a 12 bed hospice house. Last February a friend in Florida gave me a pattern for a 6" (approx.) square that has either a heart or a cross knit into the center of it. So I started making them in March 2009. We put them in the chapel at the house for families, friends or patients to take and keep to give them comfort. I've only been using Vanna's Choice because of the softness and wide range of colors. I make approximately 11 per week and because the demand has increased another volunteer is making them as well. We are deeply touched and humbled that our efforts are bringing comfort to those living through a very difficult time of their lives. Gail Thompson
