I recently participated in the Feminism and Diversity Swap, and one of our participants suggested the Welcome Blanket Project. (welcomeblanket.org)

I decided to make mine by stash busting, which required me to switch from white to black, and hot pink to 4 other shades.

 It's not perfectly square because each "square" wasn't crocheted entirely square. This will go to a refugee entering America.

I think it works because it's not perfect, no one is perfect, and America isn't perfect...but it was made with kindness, and that is what matters.

Very pretty! Could you possibly block it if you want it to be more square?

Theoretically, I suppose, if I had the space. I have not been successful at my attempts at blocking..hence, I avoid it.
