As winter is approaching I had to race and finish some sweaters and vests I had lying around but still needed finishing, the result are these three ehhmm....creations

Isn't it lovely to finish

Isn't it lovely to finish sweaters that have been waiting, partially birthed? You get to post a bunch of finished projects on MWK and Ravelry and everyone oohs and ahhs, and you get the proud moment of showing off your beautiful work, and BEST OF ALL the dreaded "MONKEY OF UNFINISHED SWEATERS" is off your back, making you feel guilty everytime you pick up a new project without finishing the old. I know all about that, says the man with 3 or 4 unfinished staring at me from the work table as I work on a "quick brainless scarf".

Boyfriends and husbands tend

Boyfriends and husbands tend to turn up when you least expect them... or they are like buses in England. You wait and wait and wait and then 3 come along at the same time :o)

I like sweater no.3 on the right too, but the model is so cute, what about him as boyfriend material?

husbands are not necessarily landed. maybe you're hanging out on the docks too much :) lol. and just to keep it in perspective, this one wasn't landed until i was 36, so you've got time. of course, there were some practice ones along the way - like swatches, if you will until you get the tension right.

with you talent, you could knit yourself a perfect bf :)

You are very talented! All

You are very talented! All three are beautiful, but I too am intrigued by the sweater on the far right. Where did you get the pattern (or is it of your own design)? Not sure I'm ready to tackle fair isle yet, but would like to put this in the queue for the future.
