1st Zimmermann piece!


This was my very first Elizabeth Zimmermann piece, and actually my very first garment. I picked the almost seamless baby jacket from the Knitter's Almanac. It had such simple instructions, and I thought the "lace" work was quite charming. I must say - what melts the heart are the buttons. I made a few mistakes on some of the pattern rows, but when trying to tink back and fix, I realized I was making it worse. So I plowed on. Hopefully most of it is camouflaged.

  • Adorable! I like that it's an "unusual" baby color too - it will go with everything!
