There are a few in there that make me want to exercise my knitting creativity.

I have a jumper/pullover/sweater that is way too big and unflattering and needs to be reborn into something else as the yarn is just too snuggly to discard. So the recycling yarn sounds good.

I'm glad this thread is getting your creative juices flowing.  We've had some great ideas so far, and I think the main list is updated.  It's getting BIG.  That's going to make it tough to choose come January!

..."I gathered these eggs from the chickens I've raised since they hatched, then whisked them up with my hand-made wire whisk, then added a 1/4C of fresh milk from our Jersey.  After gently sauteeing on the seasoned cast-iron pan made from iron mined and forged locally with a sliver of hand-churned butter and topped with fresh dill from the garden, we have breakfast - scrambled eggs."
*snort*  Cheesy

Actually, that might be a fun challenge, going with CraftyCoug's suggestion of using local yarn... to knit something with local materials that represents your locale. We could call it "Think Globally, Knit Locally".  Wink
Does someone else listen to Gogol Bordello?

I don't really have any contributions because a lot of these ideas sound really good.

I love bobbles too and they are greatly underutilized. I'd go bobble ballistic!

I have an aran sweater pattern that's got a whole panel of bobbles... it's wild.  If made out of wool it would be the most perfect ski sweater!

Specific yarn-weight challenge?  I'm thinking of the more unusual ones, lace weight, bulky, boucle, novelty...and being creative (this stems from searching for something other than shawls for the lace weight yarn I accidentally bought--not realizing it was too small for my intended project *facedesk*).

How about a knitting pattern metamorphasis challenge?
For example, some people in blogland altered the pomatomus sock pattern from knitty into a pair of fingerless gloves, and others have schemed up clapotis hats and fingerless gloves as well. credit to the original author of the pattern altered would have to be given, of course. Just think, branching out sweaters, rusted penny hats, etc...

What about seasonal knits?  ie: warm mittens for winter, light cardigan for spring, sunglasses case for sunny summer, scarf for the fall......  I always love fall & winter since there's so much that can be knit & worn, but I need more inspiration during the warm months for things that are useful/can be worn when it's hot!

Or even have the item have a pattern in it that reflected the season- snowflakes on the mittens?
