Here's what I've narrowed it down to.... (None of these pictures are mine- I've taken them from Ravelry posted by other users.... I hope I'm not committing a blog sin by doing that.)
1) 3D Argyle Blanket : I've had this sitting in on my "favorites" list over at Ravelry for a looooooooooong time. I love the look of the blanket and, bonus, it should be a reasonably easy knit. (Famous last words...) The key here is to buy the right yarn, that will have enough sheen to highlight the changes in the stitch enough to really show off the argyle.
2) For a Bonny Babe: This is a classic looking baby blanket. The cabling shouldn't be too troublesome and there's a lot of seed stitch in there that this blanket will need little to no blocking.
4) Alphabet Blanket: I saw this blanket ages and ages ago and bought the book, so enamored was I with it. And then I saw the COPIOUS charts that accompanied the pattern and chickened out. Now I'm less frightened of the pattern and am seriously considering knitting it up. Am I insane?
Baby Beef" blanket I knit a long time ago. Except I would use the same pattern author (her stuff is so cute!) and knit various animals based on the theme I go with. By using the same author, the patterns should all be around the same size and will make the 'figuring it out' portion of this blanket less challenging. This has the potential to be REALLY cute... but it also requires the most from my brain power.
SO.... what would you choose to knit? HELP ME DECIDE! Vote now! (Voting closes by Wed Aug 28th at 12:00 pm)
And I knit another hat to work on that pink stash!
I'm expecting another charity blanket to show up today, and one (HOPEFULLY) next week. (The blanket is delayed and I'm worried it's going to show up just as we're moving back into our house and then I'm going to hold it up.) After that I'm going to take a charity blanket break for awhile and start focusing on my mittens and whatever blanket we decide I'm going to knit.
Looking forward, as usual, to see where your votes will lie!
