what's on my needle and spring summer thoughs

If you follow me from my previous blog lecoccole, you already know that I never been and I'm not a OPATT (one project at the time) woman.
I have started about 4 or 5 project lately and at the moment I'm working at those two more than the other.

One is the Damson by Ysolda Teague,

and here is my work in progress. I started it at the beginning of April, when I bought a beautiful summer dress and roving in my stash I found a skein of Wollemeise in the same color and immediately I figure out the damson to pair with the dress.

Last Saturday I started another piece I already enjoy working on. Atelier by Heidi Kirrmaier a beautiful cardigan, I think it will be perfect for spring and summer evenings.

I almost finished the first sleeve (not the cardigan itself, there is a unusual construction, you complete the sleeves before starting the body part, lovely thing I guess, so when you finished the body part you've done, no more boring time knitting the sleeves :)). The yarn I choose is a very surprise for me, usually I don't like cotton yarn, it's always too rough for my taste, but this yarn is soooo comfortable: Purelife Revive is a recycled cotton - silk - viscose mist from Rowan and I'm in love with it.

To not to mention the projects I have in mind for spring and summer. This one Is going a bit slower than I suspected. I started it a month ago, but I put it down after a few rows. but I'm confident, I will finish it soon or later.
