I did it! I finally finished my first sweater! [PICS]
i finally finished my very first sweater and it was a nice challenge. i was having problems with the sleeves bec. they were coming out too big and i had to go down one needle size. this sweater is from schoeller stahl, i got the pattern from elann.com. the yarn is wool and arcrylic and is very soft and stretchy. i made this for my little sister who is much smaller than i am so i hope it fits her better.

now, can anyone help me with the zipper situation? it's horrible. i've never put a zipper on a sweater before and it's all wavy. what can i be doing wrong? should i change to a plastic zipper? are there any zipper experts out there???
