A setback and a new WIP to go

I haven't completed any of my projects showed you two weeks ago. The cardigan is a long-term challange because on the collar I have more than 500 stitchen on my needles, so in an hour I can manage to complete just 4 or 5 rows. Since the progress is not spectacular, I haven't taken a new one. Anyway I am working on the cardi and I am going to finish during next few weeks.

The other project I was writing about last time was my colorwork shawl. I suffer a setback, because just a few inches before the end I ran out of yarn and none of my country retailers has this color in stock. It was completely my fault, I haven't estimated the yardage correctly - somehow I forgot that Drops Alpaca is deeply under 200yd per ball. So now I am waiting my webshop to receive the shipment and keep my fingers crossed to have Lime color in the package.

Otherwise I am pretty satisfied with the color combination. What do you think about? Do the lime match to the grey and blue? 

To replace my shawl project I casted on a new shawl as well. This design has been in my head from a while, lets see how can I realize it. Just a few words: cables, textured, sideways... I am using the amazing Malabrigo Silky Merino in Lavander colorway.

I am curious about how other knitters spend this early fall days. 

Wishing you happy knitting!
