Picking a pattern for the red acrylic I got from my neighbor

So, with only 6 projects on my needles, and already the yarn here for I don't know how many pairs of socks, and other dreams... I really need to think about what to make out of the red acrylic yarn my downstairs neighbor gave me. I was thinking of knitty's Trellis (well, yes, I've decided already that it's going to be for the tot) -- but realized that it's 18 months maximum size. And ds is already two years old. And I don't reaalllly care for adapting the pattern to his favorite sweater... So I looked at the Drops homepage and found this and this. I will need to swatch, find the right needle size for the yarn and decide on which one to make. They are both beautiful.

Nachdem ich ja sonst nichts zu tun hab, und doch dieses schoen rote Acrylgarn von meiner Nachbarin bekommen hab, ueberleg ich, was ich damit wohl anstelle. ERst dachte ich an knitty's Trellis, aber da muesste ich ja die Groesse hochrechnen (mein Spatz ist ja naechsten Winter schon zweieinhalb, und die Groessen gehen nur bis 18 Monate). Und dann hab ich auf Drops zwei schoene Pullis gefunden: das und das hier.

On dirait que j'ai peur de m'ennuier, en tout les cas je reflechis a ce que je vais faire pour mon bout de chou du fil acrylique que m'a donne ma voisine. Je pensais a Trellis de knitty, mais les tailles vont uniquement au 18 mois, et il aura deja deux ans et demis l'hiver prochain. Donc, j'ai regarde sur le site de Drops, et j'ai trouve deux pulls qui me plaisent bien:
celui-ciet celui-la.
