Day Two: A Mascot Project for the House of Peacock



My mascot project is an idea that I have been thinking about for some time. First, I would knit a blank canvas in the form of a simple, classic raglan sweater. It would be in a neutral, un-peacock-like color such as a heather brown or tan or grey. Then I would whip out the yarn needle in order to add all sorts of embellishments using embroidery and crewelwork to the front of the sweater. I would love to do something nature-inspired like in these lovely fingerless mitts. As an added nod to the House of Peacock, this sweater pattern would make a wonderful use of some colorful wooden buttons in my stash.
