Imagine Peace Tank/Vest Prototype




Here it is --the grand unveiling! Looks like I've got myself a little John Lennon in the making!

(See the posting below for more info about Yoko Ono's Imagine Peace project.)

My goal now is to write this pattern up in 2 or 3 different sizes and publish it on the blog/link it to Ravelry within a few weeks. I'll need people to test the pattern for me once it's up in order to work out any kinks (hint, hint, crafty readers). I used Blue Sky Alpaca's Organic Cotton yarn, but I think it would be nice as a winter vest worked in wool as well (perhaps Peace Fleece would be an appropriate choice?). If you've never done color work before, don't let it intimidate you. It's not hard, just perhaps a bit awkward when first beginning.

Well, readers, have a peaceful Sunday and expect the Imagine Peace pattern to appear on the blog sometime soon...

This is really lovely. If you need a test knitter, I would love to make this for Liam. (I'll probably end up making it anyway... it's just too cute...)
