Zippers suck

No pics, no nothing. Why? Because zippers suck. I consider myself smart. But putting a zipper in is going to be the death of me. I'm following directions from Knitter's Magazine, some back issue that I bought at Flying Fingers, just for the article. Oh the pics make it look so easy! They LIE! I spent hours trying to pin the zipper in to baste and while I KNOW both fronts are of equal length, one or the other kept ending up longer. Then I finally got it right and I basted it, but I was too tired and frustrated to sew. I forgot that Sarah told me to use the directions from Bonne Marie, and I may just take it all out tonight and redo it. Bonne's makes it look even easier. Maybe another post with pics tonight...of me strangling myself with the zipper.
