My next challenges are cables and intarsia - I've only done these in a very beginning way. Both went well, but I think practice makes perfect for both of these techniques so if I keep avoiding them, I'll never be really facile. I love lace though, and keep doing more and more of that.

Personally, I think cables are SO much fun! I'd check out video tutorials for cabling without a cable needle, that took my cable fun to a new level :) I think I might choose lace over cables, though...
