So, I can knit, purl, wrap stitches for short rows, magic loop, m1r/l, bar increase, and k2tog decrease.

I would probably look at some other ways of increasing and decreasing and maybe try a simple lace pattern.

Try knitting in the round on double pointed needles. It's worth mastering this even if you can do magic loop as there are some circumstances where double pointed needles are the best way to go.

Have you made socks yet? You probably could try a pair of socks with the skills you have.

I agree with learning to knit in the round on double points!

Cables. They are actually super easy, certainly with the skills you already have you can do them. And they look fancy!

I agree with knitting in the round. I far prefer cable needles and magic looping to DPNs.

I'd also say learn to do cables. They're not nearly as difficult or intimidating as they appear. And there are dozens of different shapes/styles.

You're ready for whatever you want to make. Look at some patterns and see what inspires you.
