working the zipper

well, i have made the leap. i started putting the zipper in, by hand. i think if i were to do it by machine, i would have still wanted to baste it in so that the different materials didn't drag differently on a machine and get the zipper off kilter (before you ooh and ahh over my thinking of this, sop thought of it: he is much more skilled with the machine than i).

the zipper is a red, not bright, but not really rust either. i tried a green, a hunter green, and two shades of blue, but the red worked best with the gold yarn: it compliments and contrasts, is that posible?

wow, I'm impressed! the sweater looks beautiful too! i love that orangey-tweedy color.
