I'm thinking about making a small blanket/throw for my mother's birthday (which is in a couple of weeks; I'm guessing I won't be done in time for the birthday itself, but hopefully I will have enough done to be able to show her what I'm up to).

What should I make?

The hexagon-themed blanket pictured here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/51145300@N00/578460492
None of the above

Edit: Those links didn't work very well, did they? Let's try that again: Hemlock Ring Blanket vs. hexagon blanket

I would probably have to buy some yarn for either of these (although I do have 4 1/2 skeins of Berocco suede left over from the snapping turtle skirt that I could use for the second item). I've never really made a lace pattern before, but that could be a reason to try out pattern #1 or a reason to avoid it for now.

It occurs to me that I haven't made a posting about knitting projects in a while (blame Ravelry). I'll try to make up for that soon.
