I can't decide!!
I feel the urge to create a LARGE item. Up to this point I've only made small items. Amigurumi, or shorties, and even the occasional sock or two, . 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?
