4 ply shawl, CPH and Hipknits silk cardi

Finished the 4 ply baby shawl, this is for a friend who's daughter is expecting a baby in summer. Wasnt difficult, just repetitive and seemed to take forever.

I also cast on for Central park hoodie, think everyone seems to have knit one, Its going well so far, here is the progress on the back

The latest installment of hipknits project club also came, silk to make a short sleeved fairisle cardi. This is the first top down cardi I have tried, and the first time knitting with silk. You can see my progress in the bottom right of the picture

Wow, you got your cardi!!!! I am SO envious....I am totally fed up waiting for mine...I have been crocheting hexagons for a (someday!) blanket, and started the 10 stitch blanket from the knitting and crochet guild mag...have socks on the go...and still I'm itching to get my mitts on the HipKnits cardi...(maybe Kerrie is punishing me for NOT knitting socks for the last project?)
