I think the Fuzzy Feet pattern is probably my favorite project, ever. After conquering knit, purl, knitting in the round and decreases, I tackled fuzzy feet. It's a good first sock pattern, even though it's a slipper, not a sock.
This Christmas, everyone is getting Fuzzy Feet - 3 pairs down, about 9 to go. I've modified to include stripes or a colored toe & heel. I may also add some duplicate stitching.
I've also made the pieces for Sonnet & Haiku, but haven't put them together.
On most patterns, I've found Knitty easier to understand, but I haven't really paid much attention to the rating system. Everyone's rating system seems to be kind of arbitrary.
