Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk Sølje

Manufacturer’s swatch: 25sts x 32 rows on 3mm needles

My swatch – 10cm x 10cm in stockinkg stitch need:

24.5 sts x 34 rows on 3.75mm/US 5 needles
23.5 sts x 32 rows on 4mm/US 6 needles

Manufacturer’s notes: 350 metres/ in 100g ball, handwash.

My notes: Gorgeous two ply fingering weight yarn. Very bouncy, excellent stitch definition, it is a yarn with character. It blooms beautifully in the wash, becoming more full. It has a halo, and some may find it prickly against the skin, though it is fine with me. The swatches are in colourways 2012 Lys Brun and 2134 Gressgrønn.

I used to knit as a girl, then hanged the needles for two/three decades, and now I’m back, and loving it! The photo is my version of Linda Marveng's Aki, the first proper project after "being born again". After getting back into knitting, weaving has also become my passion (with a little sewing to turn my handweaving into garments).
