There seems to be a neverending stream of UFOs at the Periwinkle Sheep. I am finding all these projects that were abandoned at one point or another.

Today, I'll show you a little Tomten Jacket (from Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting without Tears). I know exactly why I put it down: I'd been using a variety of single skeins.

I was afraid I would run out of yarn for the second sleeve.

Though I am using single skeins, I do aim for symmetry, as that caters to my sense of balance. I'd be loathe to have to add a different shade of wool at the end of that little sleeve... but I THINK I have enough red yarn to work a button band.

Knitting at the edge of my seat.


  1. That's why when I'm in the homestretch of a project I'm in constant communication with God, praying I'll have enough yarn to make it to the end! LOL! Do you think that's too petty a problem to bother Him?

  2. That looks really nice! It'll be a nailbiter to see if you have enough!!

  3. It's beautiful! And yeah, I made one sweater once where I had one yard leftover when I got done--I promised myself I'd never do that again.

  4. that sweater is incredible! here's to having enough yarn!


Thank you for leaving a comment! It means the world to me.
