The Zipper, Again

I feel like I'm stuck in finishing hell. I am in the process of crocheting the tank top (going better than one would expect, but it's crochet-yuck) and ripping the zipper from Bless.

I steamed the bejesus out of the sweater this time, which made the cable much flatter and easier to sew. Then, I hand sewed in the ribbon to stabilize the piece. Finally, I added the zipper. So far so good on one side.

Why the sudden interest in finishing Bless? I want to take this sweater with me when I head to San Francisco (for the American Literature Association conference) and Eugene, Oregon (FUN). It won't be 95 degrees, and we Texans tend to get cold... Recommended yarn stores?
