I love Peace Fleece yarn. It’s one of the first yarns I knitted with and I loved its deep colors and the reasonable price that made it a good yarn to experiment with when I was first getting back to knitting several years ago. I also like the idea behind the company, the idea of bringing people together through agriculture and commerce.
My stash includes several different colors of Peace Fleece, as well as a good bit that I have handpainted. I gave Ollie the choice of any yarn in my stash for the vest he wanted and, child of my heart that he is, he selected some Peace Fleece in the Sheplova Mushroom colorway.
I finished the vest tonight and he is very happy with it. It’s amazing that such a simple thing could make a person so happy. Isn’t he cute?
The pattern is simple and it’s a quick knit. Somehow I managed to get my camera on a goofy setting (if anyone wants to tell me what I did here, I would appreciate it), but you get the idea.
