I'm pretty new to knitting & very new to these boards, and I'm looking for an idea of what to do next. I've made a scarf, a couple of snb "hot head" hats, and the cell phone holder from that book too. I'm tempted to try a sweater, but am afraid of spending the time & money and not being able to pull it off. I'm thinking of making either the sonnet sweater from knitty http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTsonnet.html
or the zipper hoody from hip to knit http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1931499217/qid%3D1082152617/002-4994487-0896808
(sorry, can't find a pic of the sweater)
Do those look pretty easy? Also, which is easier to do, buttons or a zipper?
