Barn Jacket

Well I got this UFO knitting monkey off of my back.  Started it in 2002.  It's been to at least 3 homes we lived in...maybe 4!  It's done and it is too big but who's done.  The pattern is Updated Barn Jacket from an old Leisure Arts book.  The yarn is Paton's /classic Wool and the color is Nouveau Denim. I'll have to bag this one in plastic.  I've learned over the years that the moths love Paton's yarn....which is can be the decoy yarn and keep them away from the more expensive yarn :). 

I made a sweater out of Paton's a couple of years ago for my father in law.  Actually I just made it and it was going to be for whoever it fit and it fit him.  By the time I figured out how to do a zipper and put it together, the moths got to it.  :(. I'm more careful with my yarn and sweater storage now.
