I just bought my first Elizabeth Zimmermann book, Knitting Workshop.  After reading it cover to cover the first day, I cast-on for BSJ.  I used scraps of Plymouth Encore leftover from other projects and a size 8 needle.  This will be either an October birthday present or a xmas present, I haven't decided yet.  I really liked this pattern.  It knit up in 3 days and was difficult to put down.  I still need to sew up the seams and add buttons, but I'll get to that eventually.  In the mean time, I like admiring the clever construction that EZ came up with.  I'm in awe of her genious.

Here is the unconstructed jacket:
