Tournament 3 Round 3 Blues

It is only the second day of this round of Nerd Wars and I'm already having troubles.

One challenge involved finishing two WIPs.  I'm going to have to finish a third WIP because the knitting portion of my second project was completed before I started finishing it.  Does that make any sense?
These are DPN holders that look like gnomes.  They had all been knit and felted/fulled and the finishing work was all embroidery and stringing elastic.  Embroidery and stringing elastic are not Ravelry crafts, so the finishing didn't count.

One challenge involves trying something you haven't done before and you find challenging.  I've been knitting and crocheting for about half a century.  There isn't much I haven't tried.  I wouldn't say that I do them all well, but doing most things doesn't challenge me.

And then there's this one:
Craft an item that is inspired by the physical landscape of your nerddom. Please include a pic of the item “in the wild” (IE:your FO shown in the type of landscape that inspired your challenge!)
I've read through pages of questions and answers about this one and still have no clue at all about what would be acceptable.

My head hurts.  I think I have the dumb.
