Time to Knit: 2 WIPs

(WIP: work in progress) x 2 

After an overload of crochet (finishing my huge crochet tablecloth), now it is time to pick up my knitting needles.  Here are two projects I am working on:
Luego de una sobredosis de ganchillo (con mi mantel enorme), estoy lista para trabajar en dos agujas.  Estos son dos proyectos en progreso…  
a. Cotton Shawl: with mixed stripes in blue, white, red, and grey.  I am happily experimenting with a new pattern (Josephine Shawl, found in Ravelry).  Thanks for the tip, Carmen ;-)
a.  Chal de algodón: con franjas mixtas en colores: azul, blanco, gris y rojo. Estoy probando un nuevo patrón (Chal Josefina), gracias a la referencia de Carmen, de Café & Puntadas. ¡Muchas gracias, amiga!

b. And here is the beginning of a Cotton Top.  It will be a new version of the top I made for my sister: Cotton Experiment.  I am making this one in different shades of green.  But this time I am making a kind of an experiment…I started the top part in crochet, and decided to knit the rest. 
b.  Y este es el comienzo de una blusa en algodón.  Es una nueva versión de la blusa que le hice a mi hermana: Experimento en Algodón.  Ahora estoy usando varios tonos verdes.  Pero en esta ocasión lo haré con una variación: la parte de arriba es en ganchillo, y el resto lo haré en dos agujas.   


  1. Me encanta como te queda , practicaré el tejer a ver si lo consigo. Un abrazo

  2. That's interesting....combining crochet and knitting. Why haven't I thought of that?

  3. I agree crochet with cotton is a summer project, now I feel the urge to find my knitting and wool :o)
    Really looking forward for seeing the knit/crochet tunic, love the colors.
    Have a nice day

  4. Ana, me encanta cómo te están quedando los dos proyectos! Los colores y cómo los combinas son perfectos! :)
    Muy buena idea lo de combinar punto con ganchillo! :)

  5. What a clever idea. The crocket top with a knitted bottom. Just great! Can't wait to see it done :)

  6. Beautiful combination, knitting/crochet.

  7. They both seem lovely projects, I'm curious to see them finished! : )

  8. Lovely makes Ana, I think it's a great idea to combine knit and crochet, I bet the result is beautiful, can't wait to see it finished. :)
