Question for the knitters!

So I have taken the sweater-knitting class! I feel like I can maybe do this! And I have six hours of plane travel to fill!

...and a queue full of sweaters and I can't decide.

The in-class recommendation was to knit a pullover
1. bottom-up
2. in pieces
3. with lots of stockinette

Because that'll be the easiest way to work in the necessary modifications for the first time.

Additional restrictions: I have no mad money and am thus on a yarn diet! Whatever I do will have to be with yarn that I already have. I currently have yarn in sweater quantities only in worsted and DK. Also note that I have yet to attempt cables and am not confident in trying them and extensive pattern mods for the first time simultaneously.

So. Knitters. Thoughts? What are your favorite simple-but-nifty sweaters?
