The zippers have arrived, and now I have no excuse for not finishing the Urban Aran. However, I'd like some help in deciding which zipper to use.
Valid arguments can be made for either one. The plastic zipper would be the most invisible, and with this sweater, I think the knitting should be the star. However, the brass zipper helps pick out the yellow fibers in the yarn (difficult to see in these cloudy day indoor photos). Also, the brass zipper would presumably be more durable than the plastic one. (Yes, I'm thinking of Grumperina's semi-recent melting incident.)
I do currently have a preference, but I'd love to have more opinions. Plastic or brass? Discuss.
