I finished my “So You Think You Can Dance” swap projects and sent them out to HSG.



This is the Woodstock Peace afghan. I saw a t-shirt online with this image on it so I copied the photo and uploaded it to knitpro to graph it.

It’s tunisian crocheted with a size J cabled afghan hook. After it was done I outlined the word PEACE in black yarn so it would stand out better.

I added a flowered sequin necklace for Woodstock and crocheted four butterflies which can be removed and pinned anywhere she likes.

In the comics Woodstock only speaks in various keyboard symbols like %#*!
So the center of the flower Woodstock is holding says Shalom (Peace in Hebrew).



I copied this word onto paper with iron-on glue in the back. Then I ironed it onto fabric. Then I sewed that onto a crocheted snowflake that kinda resembles the star of David.



The back is super-soft fleece. I used my sewing machine and it got kinda bunchy in places but I still think it turned out ok. I made my own label at the bottom there.

This rocks in so many ways!  The thumbnail looks like a poster, not yarn!

The Shalom is a wonderful detail as is the beaded necklace...I just love this!
