tomten

The Tomten is finished at last.

 

pattern:  Tomten by Elizabeth Zimmermann
yarn:  Dulaan Avalanche Yarn 
cast on:  December ’06   cast off:  January 31st
notes:  Bubba isn’t frowning, he’s saying cheese, sort of.  This is one warm/heavy jacket and I forgot how much yarn garter stitch eats up.  I prolly could have used less buttons, but I didn’t want it to gap in the cold Mongolian winters.

  1. Fabulous tomten!!

    I’m planning on making two of these for my boys soon and am trying to decide about yarn. The yarn I have in mind is a bulky weight – is that what the yarn you used is?

  2. That looks like a fabulous use for the Avalanche yarn! Some Mongolian child will be blessed indeed to have something so warm and so darned cute! Here via Zimmermaniacs…
