I've made all the knitted parts of this using a blue theme. Main Color: Colinette iona colourway 23 slate; CC 1: Colinette Jitterbug Dusk; Pony's Hooves: Iona with Frog Tree Alpaca Color 308 (navy); Pony's mane: Nashua Creative Focus Kid Mohair Chianti mixed with other leftover yarns. Haven't put it together yet. I felted another leftover navy yarn held with the Jitterbug yarn to cut for the bottom of the hooves.
