I haven't posted in a while, so I have a few to put in! This zipper was AGONIZING for me in the Urgan Aran. For some reason I can't get a good copy of the green one! It gets distorted when I reduce size.

Beautiful stuff!!

Just the idea of putting a zipper in made me break out in a cold sweat, so I commend your courage.

So impressive!

I :heart: :heart: :heart: that first sweater, especially the color--what yarn did you use for that and where do you find the pattern? Very pretty shawl too!

Thank you all! That green one, I wouldn't recommend the yarn I used. I got a cone of Donegal tweed from Webs. It feels like string when you knit with it. And it plumps up nice when you wash it, but it still is a bit scratchy. But I've seen some beautiful tweeds that are nice and soft by Tahki or whatever it is and by Lavold Elspeth (spell on both??) And they both have a similar color. Pattern is from Rowan's Vintage Knits book. By the way, same yarn experience with the shawl. I have to use up all this yarn I bought, but I have a TON of it. Now that I feel I am understanding knitting better, I'm going to try to quit using the cheapest yarns I can get my hands on so that I really enjoy the effort.
