I have been working on this for what seems like forever. Well, not constantly though (that would make me an incredibly slow knitter). The pattern is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Modular Tomten Jacket. Why could I not finish it? Well...other projects were started, I wasn't sure if I wanted to felt it, I could not decide if I wanted a zipper or buttons (but then this wonderful family: "red dirt mother" gave me some marvelous hand made wooden buttons, thank you so much Liz and family!). It really could have gone on and on and on, but I finally said, "enough". Was it that I didn't like the pattern? Oh...heck...no! Any pattern by Elizabeth makes me oooohhhh. So here it is, I hope you like it as my Jonas does. Isn't he just the cutest little boy you have ever seen? Even if he is armed with a vacuum cleaner hose (I mean gun)... oh my, oh my oh.
