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. 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!

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

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?
