Although I was too young for the Woodstock generation, I have a penchant for 70's music, Peter Max art, 70's style crochet, and other memorabilia of the times--- and so I designed the "Peace, Love, and Flower Power Shawl".

Maybe it's totally silly-looking---and I'm not really sure that I truly managed to capture the 70's spirit in this quirky shawl--- but it's at least good enough to be a cozy warm wrap on a cold winter's day since I made it long and wide in worsted weight yarn.

Charting out, knitting, and then attaching the patches was quite a trick, but it was fun playing with outrageous psychedelic color combinations.

P.S.: I'm almost finished writing the final chapter of the "Who Ya Gonna Call" series. It was the most difficult chapter to write due to the bittersweet memories and the tragic culmination of our two years at Shadyside. Sorry it took so long---I'll post it tomorrow or the next day.
