When I started spinning for the less is more sweater, I was so inspired by Amy King's pattern on knitty. I loved the concept as I too had purchased pretty fiber with no idea what to do with them and I never had enough really to make something.
I discussed the preparation and spinning here, here and here. I had this much yarn left over after finishing the knitting.
The sweater knitting was fairly straight forward except for the i-cord edges so I was off to do some research on other people's projects. Not finding what I needed, I posted a message to Amy who responded with a video to help me work the edge. It worked great and I washed and blocked the sweater.
Went shopping for a zipper and ended up with a black one. There were only two options in the 22" length that zipped apart so I went with the black.
Now to figuring out how to sew it on.
