Sweater progress


The sheep are knit with Romeldale and llama for the border, Corrie and Icelandic wools for the main motif area. The bunny border is knit in mohair blend and camel, the background in mid-grey CVM and the bunnies alternating white CVM and angora/silk/merino (because I only had 30 yards of that which translated to 5.5 rows). I made a chart reading error but it only really shows right at the seam so I’ve been able to hide it I think. On the first row of the camel motifs I had to rip back one row for the first time; I gave a camel 5 legs (oops). All fixed now. The camel border is knit in 2 shades of CVM, and the camel has the background in white camel (I have just enough I think) and camel camel (I mean camel colored camel down yarn).
