From for the love of yarn: “Some of the first true knitting we have are socks from Medieval Egypt. Many of these socks and sock fragments are worked in blue and white cotton with bands of stranded knitting representing the Arabic word “Allah” (God). I was inspired by this to create this jacket in blue and white cotton with bands of stranded knitting with the word for “peace” in as many languages as I could fit. (There are 98 to be exact!)”
