knitting advice needed!

can anyone give me, or direct me to, a simple, easy-to-follow explanation of how best to sew a zipper into a sweater? julie's sweater -- the one i've been working on for years, and my first adult-sized sweater -- is done except for the zipper. just in time for the cold snap!

I'm with Sara. The chicknits tutorial is the best, though I suppose I'm a pinch less anal about the whole thing. Then again I have a rogue cardi that I wore all around Rhinebeck with the zipper sewn in about a half-inch off. So I suppose a little more anal might help.

Can't wait to see you. There's an IR knitting sig at 2 on sunday at the hotel. Go figure.
