Something challenging. FOUND MY CHALLENGE
 
UPDATE:
I found my new challenge...

http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/FEATextreme2in1.html

I have knit 2 socks at a time, side by side... so now i am going to try this

ORIGINAL:
I am just finishing up a sweater (using fingering weight yarn!) and do not have another project lined up (weird!)

I really want to do something that will challenge me.

I have knit almost everything from simple, to complex lace or stranded color work... Socks on size 1 needles to afghans on size 15 needles (and every size in between).

Does anyone have a project that is challenging that they loved?

I am not looking for a huge project (due with baby #3 in may... So something i can finish in a somewhat timely fashion!)
*i am a fast knitter.

Have you tried entrelac? It's actually pretty easy, but can be challenging at first.

Entrelac is a great idea.
I don't know if you're up for another baby blanket but this one is different, challenging and fun to do.

I also love this book by Alice Starmore for aran sweaters. They're never boring.

Congrats on baby 3. That's great news!

A sweater in fingering weight. :passedout: I've always wanted to make one, but I'm not sure I'd have the patience to finish it! Good for you! Please share in What'cha knitting!

i have... once i got the hang of it it bored me! i still have the scarf on the needles somewhere! hahaha

it was fun until i got into the rhythm... i think the biggest problem with it was the yarn i was using

its only taken me about a month of knitting after the kids go to bed (so maybe an hour or two a night, but i don't knit every night)... its pretty

this is the pattern i used (but made the sleeves longer)

That's very cute!

Maybe it's time to take up a new craft--crochet maybe or tatting? How about Tunisian crochet?

I noticed in Ravelry that you can sort by difficulty level. Have you tried that?
