If you come up with the answer to that questions we'll all be anxious to hear. I do love that barn jacket. I may have to go drag out my copy and look at it again. Isn't Flying Geese in that book too? It's my favorite sweater of all time!


Oooh I love that jacket. Where oh where can I find that pattern?????



I love the barn jacket. If you make it, I would enjoy hearing about it. The putting together of the pieces intrigued me or scared me, haven't looked at it in awhile.

I didn't like Flying Geese until I saw one in person and now it is on the someday list.


Starting a new project is like falling in love... getting into the middle of it is like settling into a dating relationship, might be fun but not the same excitement... and by the time the project is nearing completion, it has stopped showering every day, doesn't shave nearly often enough, and has decided that Couch Potato is a great job description. Finishing a project is kind of like breaking up with the old fart, you just want to be done with it and move on to something new. At least, that's what my friends who date tell me!


I have no idea what the answer is to that one!
I am always starting new things!

The Jaeger Shetland is lovely to knit up. The name is a bit of a misnomer, what with the alpaca content, but it makes gorgeous scarves, should you have any leftovers.



Hi -- I love reading your blog. Where does one find the Yankee Puzzle Barn Jacket pattern? Googling provided no help. Thanks --


Love the Barn Jacket pattern! I began this sweater several years ago using the Alice Starmore Bainin. The bottom pieces turned out great, but I could not get gauge on the double moss stitch yokes. The whole thing is in UFO-dom somewhere in the scary basement. However did you get gauge to knit 3, and now 4, of these sweaters?


I personally say that I start projects because of the thrill of it, finding the right yarn, making sure I have the needles, if not buy them...then ponder over the pattern more - and start...I knit and knti and knti and then all the excitement wares off...hmmmmmmmm dont' know why that is,... time to start a new project!!
