Illustration Friday: Sweater

This is my second IF drawing.
Also found on flicker among my other works.
The first one I did was last week. You can find it here.

The initial idea that came to my mind was a person sweating, but that didn't intrigue me enough to draw. Second thing was a llama. I love alpaca wool. So soft. And here is the drawing. 
There is just something so serene about a knitting grandma. And this idea makes knitting "green". :)
No dying. No processing. No balls of yarn with printed labels...
The original drawing has a bit of a color. The sweater is actually sepia and so are the flowers the lama is eating. But I couldn't scan in the colored version well, the BW came out much better.
Thank you for looking.
