After much deliberation, I have two ideas, and I can't seem to choose between them. One is a very simple stitch pattern, with the interest coming partly from the shaping and mostly from the yarn (colorful and variegated). The other is a more complicated stitch pattern (both colorwork and texture going on), in two contrasting neutral shades.
1. Do you have a preference? I can give more details if you want; I wasn't sure how much of a surprise you want it to be.
2. Do you want to be completely surprised, or do you want to see WIP photos?
