Ribby Cardi Complete!

I figured I was going to be sewing up the last bootie anyway, so I might as well get in a sewing mood and install the zipper. And ta da, here it is... a finished Ribby Cardi:

I don’t know why it took me so long to sew in the zipper — it was really just a mental obstacle. Silly girl. After seeing Becky’s hand-sewn zipper for Captain Destructo, I knew hand sewing was the way to go. Better control over where things end up.

Ribby Cardi is a fast and easy knit — but finishing is a hassle (in general). It would be awesome if this pattern were converted into a top-down, knit-in-one-piece kind of pattern. I’m sure it can be done. In fact, I’ve decided that that’s what I’m going to do with the GGH Goa (that has been rescued from yet another error-laden Suss pattern) — knit a top-down ribbed turtleneck! No more ends to weave in! Brilliant.

Thanks for the lovely comments, everybody! I used Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed in "Posie". It is so soft and comfy -- I'm happy I got to wear the new sweater before summer gets here!

Oh, that's what I'm using for Anya from Jo Sharp's pattern book...it doesn't look as dark as yours but that could be because I'm just using st st throughout too. It sure is nice knitted up!
