Imagine all the Frogging
I've had twelve balls of this olive yarn for a long time. It's Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran...slik, cashmere and merino. I've started and frogged many a sweater with this yarn. I just can't seem to find the correct shape sweater or a pattern that I love knitting. I'm hesitant to crochet something with this yarn, although I know I could make something faboo. It's just that crocheting does use up about one-third MORE yarn than knitting does. I want to maximize the amount of yarn I have.
After reading about this sweater, I can't seem to get it out of my mind. The designer, A. Karen Alfke, talks about how this symbol means a lot to people of her mother's generation. I must be close to Karen's mother's age, because the peace symbol and John Lennon's song, "Imagine" are both very powerful for me too...Imagine all the people living life in peace…

I'm going to attempt a top-down version of this pullover and see how the symbol turns out in olive green. The olive color may be too dark to properly show the highs and lows of the symbol, so we'll see.
