Thanks everyone! I think I will go to joanns today and see if I can get a zipper--no guarantees that it will get put in, though!

Mer that is a gorgeous sweater. I really like the pattern. I wouldn't want to put the zipper in either. Also you are so pretty. I just love your haircut.

It's gorgeous! You sister is sooooooo lucky!

Not to scare you...but if you can get help on the zipper, do it! It took me hours to get the one on Jim's sweater right. I was doing it on the machine...I probably should've hand sewn it in from the beginning. I had to rip it out so many times it's a miracle I didn't ruin the sweater. Maybe you can put up a seperate post in the how to forum and get some tips from experienced "zipper putter inners" I know I'd like some tips for my next attempt

Thanks! I will definitely try to get help with the zipper. My DH said his mother would love to use her new sewing machine, but I'm thinking the sweater might be too thick for a machine. So did you end up doing it by hand, kemp?

I put my cardigan zipper in by hand -- my mom lent me a finishing book hat I can't put my hands on at the moment, but it had fabulous instructions. It's done in three steps -- basting with thread, then stitching with the knitting yarn, then backstitching where the initial basting was done. Simple but tedious. I haven't done the backstitching yet but my zipper hasn't fallen off...
