October knitted wrap for a Warrior Princess

October is here and with it comes the awareness and attentions given to the prevention and early detection of Breast Cancer. For my family, we think of it every day. I suppose it's going to be that way for a long, long time. Our hearts still hurt...

I have always created a beautiful
and special knitted wrap
to raise awareness...

this year's knitted wrap
is truly special..

 a creation
to honor of our own beautiful
Warrior Princess..

 my commitment
to raising awareness is unwavering,
although humble,
this is my little contribution
to the cause..

  as always,
the charitable proceeds 
will be donated
to a local organization that provides
assistance to women
with breast cancer.

this wrap was created
with amazingly soft yarns,
every stitch bound together with a

68 inches long
18 inches wide

the wrap is embellished with a garden of blooms...
  vintage fabrics, old crochet pieces, lace, ribbons..
exquisitely and intricately 
hand beaded.

each embellishment is unique
and special..
no two are alike.

a tiny patch 
in the corner of the wrap
bears a beaded breast cancer awareness
subtle, yet powerful reminder
of the cause..

 the body of the wrap is
knitted with muted tones of tan and light brown...
leading into
 a banner of soft, pink awareness..

uniquely special...
there is only this one...
the wrap is available for purchase
in my ETSY shop
 my thoughts on October...
It has been hard to see the signs and advertisements everywhere you look. The whole world is pink right now...and sometimes, that's not pretty. Our wounds are still raw, and the month of October is like a giant stab of salt to what still hurts. I care deeply about raising awareness, my commitment will remain strong. I do this to honor our beautiful Alicia and for all those, who like her, must find a way to live their lives while fighting this disease. My contribution seems so very small. I hope and pray that through this meager effort, someone will gain strength and know that they have within themselves the power and the courage to become a warrior princess like no other..
