WIPs in long break

During the last three months I have had a little break in blogging. I didn't intend to take one, but there was nothing to write about. In fact  several things happened to me: I am working in a new position which I am not sure about I do like it, we are about to buy a new home, living a very social life, so busy days. Since March I didn't complete any projects, but I am working on some in my short creative time.

I've started this cardigan in March and shared a few pictures in my last WIP post. I am 90% ready with it. It is going to be a long cardi fully covering my back and hips. On the front it will open with a rope or with big buttons - still not sure about. I am at the finish line working on the shawl collar which will be long and wide, so a couple of working hours has still remained. 
I am not following any particular pattern. At the beginning I adopted SusieM's contiguous method which is a brilliant idea to start a sweater. Otherwise I improvise fitting and length using my swatch. I haven't even drafted the process. Yay, I do also like living dangerously!


The cardigan is leaving on the bedside from a while because in these hot summer days I mostly work on my silkpaca shawl. So let me show you a new piece in my designing queue. I don't mean to cover it yet but here are a few sneak peaks: crescent, top-down, slip stitches, 3-colors. Are you curious?

How do you like the third color? I guess the lime skein will pop-up the classical navy look.

I would like to get back to the WIP wagon looking what you are working on and sharing my knitting progress regularly.
