Husband Sweater: Finished… Well, sort of.

It’s done! It’s done!

Well- mostly.

I cast off the last sleeve last Friday, after months of stagnation.  (Sorry, husband!)  It’s done!

I wove in the ends and, miracle of miracles, it fits!  Woo Hoo!

Of course, it’s still missing one very important thing:  the zipper.

I went to get a zipper at Jo-Ann’s over the weekend, but they were closed due to a power outage from a thunderstorm(!) earlier in the day.  So my husband has been wearing the sweater sans zipper for the last few days.  At least he likes it.

The moment I get a chance to go back to Jo-Ann’s I’m zipping over there as fast as I can!

What’s the last project that took you way longer than it should have?

    Looks great, even without the zipper!

    I’m curious how you’re going to do the zipper installation? I’ve never tried the traditional method (sewing machine) but I really love the Eunny Jang method that uses a knit picker to add stitches to the zipper tape. You’re then sewing yarn to yarn.

    I’m planning a zipper on my current sweater and hoping to use Eunny’s method, so any tips or tricks you’ve got, I’d love to hear 🙂
