New project, progress, plans, dreams

Here is a better picture of the red socks´s pattern:
Then I have begun a new project, a long cardigan out of yak and merino, which will have some embroidered elements and probably will show a crocheted closure. But from that I am weeks away. It is knit on 3mm circs and has a width of about 58", length 32". The result of three days and nights is here:
It will be my project for February, hopefully.
At last, I thought about this KAL to be a 52 week challenge that should help to get accomplished some of those longlasting dreams. That is why I will cast on for one of my old favourites, the Frost Flowers and Leaves Shawl from Eugen Beugler.
If I show some threads, would you help me with deciding on colour and fiber?
I have some dark blue silk, some dark bluegreen lace from Uruguay and a dark purple cashmere laceweight and a stone grey raw silk and would like to have some help with the decision because this will be a long time project, perhaps not ending before the end of this KAL.

Wow! The sock looks beautiful! I'll follow your opdates on the cardigan for sure.

I personally would love to help you select a colour, but I am biased... as green is my favourite colour. ;-)
