Arwen!!

One trip to the zipper store later, and voila! My top-down Arwen in all its glory, all sewed up and ready to ship off to Boston to the sister. I think that she'll be able to get a lot of use from it: it's soft, stretchy, and practical, and the zipper definitely gives it structure.


Sewing a zipper on the inside of the placket definitely takes some of the awesomeness away from the reversible cable, but it's rather innocuous, and the custom-chosen color is a definite match.


Now I am finally DONE with this one and can move on to something more exciting -- like row after row of tiny-gauge stockinette in my post-yoke fair isle...

Gorgeous!! I love this sweater - your mods are great. I wouldn't have thought to add a zipper, but it makes it so much more functional. Excellent job, congrats!

It's soft, stretchy, beautiful, and the kind of garment that can be worn to school, work, or to flop around the house. It's perfect.
