Serging
Sew
If you're looking for a quick and gratifying sewing project, knitwear is an excellent place to start. After all, knit fabrics are pretty easy to fit and usually don't need fiddly closures. With knit fabrics there's not a lot standing between you and a garment that's so comfortable you may never want to take it off.

(Think freezing-cold movie theaters in summer.)
