Sewing in your zipper

Ribby #1 in lavender and raspberry for daughter #2 is done except for the zipper, which I ordered from Anyone else attempting or did sew in the zipper to the Ribby by hand? Don't have a sewing machine, and the seamstresses around here kill plain seams, let alone be trusted to set in a zipper on a hand-knit! Any tips appreciated.
Ribby #2 in a light heather blue with cream stripes (merino wool from Beaverslide and Patons) has been started; this one I am doing on 1 needle; joining the 5 pieces at the armhole was a major pain. At least here only the sleeves will have to br joined to be body, and the decreases will have to match.
