Knitting and a Fugly Winner

I finished my third Honey Cowl. 
I love the soft green color of the yarn.

But now I need to find another knitting project to tackle.
I'm calling on all knitters out there to suggest what I should try to make next.
I'm thinking of a cardigan sweater, 
made of cotton or cotton and linen blend yarn.
Can you suggest a pattern?

As promised I will announce the winner of the Fugly Fabrics today. I can't believe so many people, 55 total, wanted these batiks.
I decided to choose someone who would use the fabrics to make a charity quilt.
So without further delay,
the winner is
ANNE, who said
Anne, I will send off your fabrics this week.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who left a comment.

Happy Valentine's Day!
Here are a few of my favorite things from Pinterest for Valentine's Day.
I hope you have a great day with your sweetheart.

That cowl looks scrumptiously soft and wearable! Hope you find another good project but no help from me because knitting baffles me.

Di, here is my recommendation for your next project. I made this sweater a few years ago in a KAL and wear it all the time. I used Cascade Venezia, which is Merino and Silk, but it would work well in any fairly soft, drapey yarn. http://www.interweavestore.com/Knitting/Patterns/Minimalist-Cardigan.html
