Penn State University’s Dance Marathon—lovingly called THON —is an annual event that benefits The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. The Four Diamonds Fund was started by Charles and Irma Milafter their son, Christopher, lost his 3 year battle with cancer in 1972. Symbolic of the traits Christopher felt were needed to defeat cancer, he wrote a story in which the knight Sir Millard overcomes obstacles to achieve the four diamonds of Courage, Wisdom, Honesty and Strength.

Our challenge is to use the four diamond symbol as a string....
I started out with 4 diamonds as my string, and had no idea where i would go from there. That is one of the great things about tangling, no pre-conceived idea of what it will look like...just let it unfold before you. I put the small diamond in the middle of the 4 diamonds then did the Poke Leaf to seperate the sections. To finish the borders, I did XYP. I tried to do a large Facet in the center, which was a little tricky to do around the Poke Leaf, and completed it with Knightsbridge. When it was done you couldn't see the 4 diamonds I started out with. I considered starting over, but really didn't have the time this week so I decided to just shade a little heavy around the original 4 diamonds and go with it...no mistakes...a zentangle is a zentangle!
Another fun challenge..thanks, Laura & Diana!
