Knitting

Project Peace 2020

During a week of rollercoaster emotions but definitely a big add in my positive column, is the news that Christina Campbell will host another Project Peace knit-along.  Since 2016, I have joined her and knitters from around the world by picking up my needles and conscientiously focusing on peace during hectic December days.  What started five years ago as a unique idea to conduct a knitting “peace-along” after the electoral dismay of 2016 has continued each December. Every year Christina shares a new themed pattern and daily meditations.  Project Peace 2020’s theme is “peace in place inspired by the need to connect with place during the pandemic and find peace in the now.”

My Ravelry project page is built and I am anxiously awaiting yarn suggestions (November 18) and the pattern drop on November 30. I am already imaging the fiber loveliness that will become an elongated, textured shawl since Christina’s previous patterns gave me these crafted beauties.

You can even follow everyone’s progress on Instagram: @thehealthyknitter by checking the hashtags: #projectpeace2020 and #knitforpeace.

  1. I have joined the project each year but have not completed any of the shawls. I was just reading Christina’s blog this morning, looking for a way to embrace peace as we close out this crazy year. New to your blog and enjoying your posts.

  2. Glad to see another blogger on the Peace Project. I’ve followed it every year, just not always completing a project. Totally impressed with your results! But regardless of what I get done I have always gleaned a lot from her posts and found a deeper peace in myself at the end of 21 days. Looking forward to the shawl and pursuing peace. Thanks.
