Ode to Heilo

Wintergarden Pullover by Mary Ann Stephens, knit in Dale Garn Heilo

The original Wintergarden Pullover, ten years later.

Going through some of my files this morning, it dawned on me that, oh my gosh, my Wintergarden Pullover is ten years old!  It’s been a hectic decade of adventures for Wintergarden – skiing, hiking, knitting, scrambling, chasing, knitting, lounging, loafing, knitting – and yet it still looks like new.  Reason #947 why I love, love, love Heilo yarn.

Dale just recently discontinued quite a few colors of Heilo. 😦  I swear, I mourn the passing of every discontinued Heilo color!  Thankfully, they’re still offering most of the core “traditional” Heilo colors, as you’ll see in their latest color card, below.

  1. Amazing that a hand made sweater can still look so fantastic after all those years and so much wear. That makes the hand knitting experience all the more valuable. I haven’t been knitting long enough to have one of these moments but I’m really looking forward to it.
