tomten for a girl named tomten


this is the tomten jacket for my niece, once removed. i knit it during the christmas holiday and it was a little bit like in cinderella. the mice must have helped me because it was done without me even noticing it. or that is how it felt. the recipient's last name actually means tomten in danish. she is a great fan of ez. she has had several baby surprise jackets already and is especially fond of her noro silkgarden bsj. we call it the jimi jacket since it reminds us all of something jimi hendrix would have liked to wear in his heyday.
right now i am knitting yet another bsj for another little girl. and then i will knit the seamless hybrid.
the tomten with matching boots is made out of rowanspun and yorkshire tweed dk.
