Zipper Update

Denim isn't new, but I haven't really worn her yet. Finished her in the summer. I loved here dearly when I finished, but somehow the zipper being darker than the sweater was bugging me unless she was all zipped up. Here Denim is closed.

I simply cast on four stitches and knit the length of the sweater. In this case, curling stockingnette(?) is just perfect. I used regular thread and stitched down the center of the facing by hand.

I'm a happier camper now.
