Wip-ing heck!!!!!!!!

I was going to post a piccie of my wip's but once I started getting them out of hiding, I realised there were more than I thought!!!!!! so heres a little taster instead of the full monty!
theres the front of the lovely bergere cabled jumper, the front and back of a greek pullover, the back of db's Katy, the back of a plain jersey, part of the yarn forward cropped cardi, and my dads sharfik. thats maybe a third of my half finished things :O I should crack on with them and get them finished, but a) my choice of wips is now overwhelming, and b) I have all those piw's to distract me!!!!! speaking of piw's, take a look at these beauties! I'm desperate to make the i-cord jumper from "inspired cable knits" I did buy the cotton angora with this in mind but now I think the cashmerino aran might be better?! what do you think?
And then theres this waiting in the wings also........................................! from the same book:-)
I have some lovely soft db merino dk to use for it, and I should have enough left for a plain cardi or something after?!
So many lovely things I want to make and so little time to do them :-(

I like the cashmerino aran best, but only cos I can't wear angora ;) I like the pink project, which yarn is that. I've deleted my blog btw, as DH wants to set up a joint one, so we thought it best to start again!!

Oooh, another I-Cord jumper person! I've heard that the Cashmerino Aran pills too but that said, I'm using some at the mo for gloves and it feels so lovely!

Looking forward to seeing more progress on all those WIPs!

I'd say the Cashmerino Aran but maybe do a swatch and see how it washes. I'm knitting the Tab Button Jacket in the dk and there's no sign of pilling as I knit. But as someone pointed out cashmere itself DOES pill so it's maybe to be expected.

Ooh I like the Cashmerino aran too, no idea whether it pills, but you could always get one of those little fabric shaver gizmo's. People swear by them for re-vitalising old knitwear.
