Even in Vermont you can be a Metro Girl!

Yep, we don't have a metro. And we wouldn't qualify as a metropolis (in my opinion). But that shouldn't stop you from tackling a beautiful pattern like Metro Girl from the Manos Arts and Crafts pattern booklet like Sandy W did.

Take a look at this amazing zippered cardigan knit in Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica. And yes, I did say it is a zippered cardigan!
Don't let a zippered pattern fool you - it isn't terribly hard to get the zipper in your finished project if you have the correct type and length of zipper. (We have order forms in the shop for custom zips!) All you need it a bit of sewing thread and a sewing needle and you, too, can have a zippered cardigan - some might even say that this is easier than knitting button holes...

That is a very nice sweater (and nicely made, too!). I always enjoy seeing customer projects on your blog.
