Aspinwall Final Stretch

The knitting is complete for Matt's Aspinwall Revisited. I'm blocking the neck opening in preparation of the zipper installation. Then I'll do a final blocking. I like doing it separately so the neck opening doesn't stretch out.

After some debate and consultation, it's been decided that a black zipper would look sharp. Plus easy to find. As a matter of fact, I sort of expected to have one in my sewing stash. I do have two 9" black zippers actually. Both are invisible zippers (as that's my preference in skirts).

The neck opening should be dry and ready in a day or two, so that give me time to get to the sewing store (assuming they even have a 9" black zipper in stock. I don't have good luck with our local Joann's and zippers. Usually end up mail ordering them).

Meanwhile, two other cardigans are complete (meaning I finally got buttons on them):

Hey Addiction:

Meanwhile, I now have empty size 6 and size 7 needles. Since that's against my knitting rules, I need to find something to cast on, right?
