For Christmas I wanted to make my brother Mangyle from Knitty. Well it took forever and finding the colors was a problem. So I finally gave him a link to some yarn colors and asked him what colors he liked (without telling him what they were for).

Well, the Christmas gift became a birthday gift, as I finished in February. There were times when I was making it where I wasn't very happy with it, but once it was done, I was really happy! (Yes, my pictures are on a girl dress form, and they are very girly colors, but what can I say, I didn't pick the colors!) Made in KnitPicks Swish DK



The second thing I just finished is Snow White. I really liked the pattern, but I am not 100% happy with the result. I used Elann Insence, because I had it. I think I should have tried to fine the correct weight yarn. The sweater looks a little silly on the dress form because of the lack of arms. I do want to make another one, and one for a friend (I think it would look really good on her).



Now, I am am wanting to work on a cardigan. I have lots of ideas, but haven't started.

Wow, you knit a lot. I never finish big projects like sweaters.
They both look great!

These are both great! I don't think the colors on the first one are too terribly girly - your brother can man it up a bit with a collared shirt and tie underneath.  I think guys who wear argyle are pretty sexy myself, so he's got that going for him...  And the second one is great too!  I don't know why you wouldn't be happy with it. It looks pretty cute to me.  Great job!  Grin
