Help Me Decide?

I love both of these shawls, photos below. If you had to make yourself a VERY special shawl (whichever is chosen will be made in white) which of these two would you choose? I love them both. HELP! Leave me a comment, would you? I appreciate your input! (((hugs)))

"a VERY special shawl" "made in white"...hummmmmmmm conjures up all kinds of possibilities in my mind!
I love the pattern of the red one and the size and draping of the white one. Both are beautiful...guess it is a coin toss. Which is appealing to you knitting wise? Will be anxious to hear the final choice.

For some reason I like the shaped triangle shawl. They are both beautiful.

Both are very ambitious looking shawls! I am partial to the first one, but it may be the color, rather than pattern that stands out. Have you selected the yarn, yet?
Your blog is fascinating! I'm new to the whole blog idea, so it's very interesting to me to read and enjoy the pictures. It's like a tiny soap opera, only very real and cozy.

The Shaped Triangle has more of an interesting "visual texture" with all the different stitch combinations. The faroese one seems just to be the same pattern repeated over and over again. I think with a single color yarn I would want to go with something that wowed me with design.

Hmmmmm.....a WHITE shawl? For a special occasion? Do you also have new jewelry in your future? :)

I do love both of the shawls, but the white one appeals to me more. Both in size, drape and design.

Shaped triangle .... but, admittedly so - both are beautiful!

Both are beautiful. You just know you'll be happy with either (or both! says the greedy knitter in me). If I had to pick one to do first or for a special occasion, I'd go with the faroese shawl. It's the rippling drape, so much like a cape or veil that captures MY fancy (fantasy). Hmmm. Also, if it is something to be done on a deadline, this looks like it might be an easier construction to manage.

Gorgeous, both. But I'd save the more difficult pattern for a situation in which I could enjoy the difficulty, not be worried by whether or not I'd get it done on time! Just me though. Others rise to such challenges; I go find chocolate!

The triangle gets my vote. I like the different stitch patterns and the contrast in length (long in the back).

The faroese looks like it would be easier to wear, but it isn't as exciting as the other.

I like the red one better. The patterns are delicate and sweet just like you! :)
