Question: Knitting Challenge?

Hi again. As I was seaming up my poncho I realized that I am having a hard time figuring out what seams are appropriate for what stitches, designs, etc. and am challenged by the prospect of making a seam that looks flawless and professional. (For the poncho I am attempting the Invisible Weaving technique for Shoulder Seams. Ack! I really don't care for seams.) As I was thinking of this I began wondering what the rest of you are challenged by, whether also by seams (join me, my sisters & brothers) or by other things such as colorwork, sizing, etc. So, I present to you the following question: What at this present time is most challenging to you in this wonderful world of knitting? If you want to answer a second question, what have you never tried in knitting because you are intimidated by it? (If enough answers are the same I'll create a tally bar and post it at the side so we can watch the results as the answers come in.)

Most challenging: getting an accurate gauge swatch

Most intimidating: knitting a sweater. I'll break down by the end of the year, take a break from socks and make a sweater. In the meantime watch my DPNs quiver whenever I think sweater.
