i was surprised to find that i had the pattern in my knitters magazine archives. i use to subscribe back in the day ... when the magazine was worth its cover price.
so, now i can say "i've made one". i may not ever make another one though ... i don't get into miles and miles of garter stitch. i am very pleased with the finished sweater, nevertheless.
i would like to knit more zimmermann stuff sometime. and i really enjoy her writing style. i still think my favorite of her books is _knitter's almanac_ ... such a great read and tons of patterns!
i got a gift certificate to amazon for christmas. it took awhile, but i finally settled on a few books (and a dvd) ....
