I made it. Just barely...I mean yards to spare. Normally I would have bought an extra ball...but the next size up required the same amount of yarn, so I thought I would be safe.
You may need a refresher...because I have been MIA for so long.
Olive, sleeves...very little yarn...remember?
Here she is...awaiting a zipper...
I finished the seaming about 4 days ago...you can see that I have had no time to search for a zipper.
Here is a little thought for you fiber specialists.
I get gauge...but a swatch is so small that you don't really see how the fabric will drape in the big picture. This sweater has a lot of weight to it, being a semi chunky knit. When I try the sweater on it is a little longer because of how the yarn pulls it down. Are you following me?
Anyway, what do I do about a zipper size? Measure when I have it on? Lay it flat to measure for a zipper length? Take both of these things into consideration? Or just make a button loop and attach a button...forgetting the zipper all together?
