Notes

Taught myself German short rows based on YouTube from Purl Soho. Excellent!

09-03-2023

Last motif of color work adapted from M Mucklestone’s book of 250 motifs. There is no way that all of that lovely colorwork is going to look right draped across my chest, so I modified it. A lovely lovely pattern, though.

Added color work for the blue llamas onto the sleeve instead of across the torso. Improvised bottoms of sleeves due to shortage of foxglove yarn. Very, very satisfied with this!

In honor of my late, lamented herds: Paz, Nike, Domingo, Quechua, Jubilee, Rashida, and Summer

Thanks for 20 years of llama and alpaca fun!
