The Law of Attraction

Could it be possible that yarn is involved in the law of attraction?  I was starting to think I want to knit an Aran sweater, but I didn’t necessarily want to spin the yarn.  I was thinking I needed a yarn fix, but couldn’t really find a color or price I liked.  The only thing I kept having in mind was light blue.  Well, wouldn’t you know I got an email about my LYS having a sale based on their loyalty punch cards.  I had enough for 50% off.  Well… I think I did good, since I could’ve came home with a lot more.

I bought 13 balls of this gorgeous light blue – 100% pure wool of Ella Rae.

Now I figure that’s enough for one of several possible Arans.  These are the ones I have in mind (all Rav links):

Now if I do one of these I may have enough yarn to do the front of the Ribby Cardi.  Any suggestions?  I imagine I will knit them all one day, so which one should I do now?
