I can't decide!!

I feel the urge to create a LARGE item. Up to this point I've only made small items. Amigurumi, levihippo (3) or shorties, Large and medium and even the occasional sock or two, DSC01702. But I'm feeling the urge to make something nice for ME! Something I can actually use. Something beautiful. Something unique. I feel I've gained enough knitting skill to tackle a larger item. It might take me a year to make what I have in mind but I really want to try something new! So here's the dilemma. Do I want to make a blanket/afghan? I'm looking at this pattern, Alexi Throw. It has cables. Now granted I've not done a whole lot of cables but I like the way they look. I'm also looking at this entrelac Himalaya shawl. I've never done entrelac though. So I was thinking if I decide to do the Himalaya, I would practice first on an Entrelac Scarf Tutorial. For either project I was thinking of getting Noro Kureyon. Here's a blog with some great examples of Noro projects. So which would you do?

I can't vote because.. they're both beautiful, but it fully depends what you're most likely to use! For me, the cabled scarf would be much more likely to get regular use. And I love the cables... :)
