Been working hard on the sweater i started for my sister for Christmas. It is heavy so i am thinking it will be a coat. I am even considering a zipper. Has anyone done a zipper on a sweater? The front will be slashed open. I have already slashed the sleeve openings. It is made with Plymouth Baby Grand Alpaca. Very soft. I also figured out a way to use two circular needles instead of 3-4 double pointed needles to do the sleeve. I basically knit from one needle to the other. I will have to go to double pointed when i get down to the cuff.
