This project has been on my “want to do” list for so long now, I finally got around to doing it! And what better weather to wear a warm winter coat in, than gloriously cold below freezing winter temperatures?
Despite being a simple project, this did take longer than expected to finish. Largely due to doing my best to respect and adhere to the original craftsmanship. I cannot claim their excellence, but I can at least appreciate and acknowledge it.

The wool yarn I am using is Hillesvåg Sølje, a lovely, soft yarn from the Norwegian longwool (Norsk pelssau), a sheep with wool in natural shades of grey, which gives all the colors beautiful mottled tones.
Norwegian sheep breeds, in English, if you are so inclined.
