- Ravelry Project Page: Peace
- Pattern: Project Peace by Christina Campbell
- Needles: US 4 (3.5 mm) Straights
- Start to Finish: November 28, 2016 – February 19, 2017
- Notes: Modified to knit length-wise.
Knitting in the round on a circular needle is my least favorite way to knit. I loved the whole idea behind this project, but didn't have any "peaceful feelings" about making it until it was suggested that the pattern be modified. Of course!
I did a few calculations and ended up provisionally casting on 45 stitches, working a 3-stitch I-cord in contrasting color on each side of the 39-row pattern. I knit and knit and knit — 210 pattern repeats, and finished with a 3-needle bind off.
It turned out quite nice. I might have made it a little wider and/or a little shorter, but it makes a nice couple of nice loops 'round my neck right now, and I love the colors.

Hey, it's FRIDAY!! I woke up this morning to snow mingled with "wintry mix" and a couple flashes of light followed by rumbling… THUNDERSNOW!
Tomorrow is the final day of the Best Picture Festival and I'm looking forward to that, and then the OSCARS on Sunday night! Tomorrow's line up is Fences, Lion, Arrival, Manchester By The Sea, and Moonlight (which I've already seen, so will likely skip… five movies in one day is a lot!).
There's going to be some serious stash-busting/leftover-using pom pom making around here. So fun!
