The first project is 400 yards and it has to remind you of a character or scene or anything from a favorite book, movie or TV show. I know exactly what I want to make.
Last year when I was still in Boston, I would go to Gather Here each knit night, and one of the local knitters was doing Sock Madness. She made these socks (rav link) and they were awesome. They looked fun to wear, and they looked fun to make. And better yet, they remind me of something I would think Elizabeth Bennet would wear.
Fun to make has changed a lot in the past 6+ months. Now fun to make means simple, easy to put down, and easy to remember my place. It does mean that I've been doing a lot of stripes, very little patterning, almost no shaping. It will be nice to take a bit of time over the summer to try and move back to more complex patterns.
