Do you have a project that you started ages ago and is hiding in a closet somewhere?  Or maybe a long-term project you’ve been working on for years?  Well the projects in today’s eye candy used to be long-term unfinished objects, but now they are done and they were worth the wait!

First, the sweaters! quiltmomoffive‘s Hex Coat, ckknitter‘s De Colores, and Poetmom‘s World’s Longest Fair Isle Project (at nearly 20 years, she is probably close to holding that record!).

And the blankets! makkidi‘s OUR Lizard Ridge, Violiknit‘s Blanket Freelancing, and januaryone‘s Madness.

And the other stuff! DinosaraKnitsInga Hat, yarnRx‘s Vacuum hose ‘hose’…, and EvilOlive‘s Twisted Flower Sock.

My favorite part of finding all these projects was reading the notes – so many of them detail year-long sagas to create these beautiful projects, capturing the inspiration and advice picked up along the way.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
