What's the Opposite of a "No-Brainer"?

My lovely spindle-spun wool is turning into a "no-brainer" project, the kind suitable for social knitting or travel knitting or for those times when you need something soothing to knit on auto-pilot.

It's a Lacy Baktus, one of my favourite patterns, very simple, extremely wearable. However, my attention span being rather short, I've also cast on for a new design. This one is bottom up and here's the lower hem.

It's my first project with Rowan's Felted Tweed Aran, and I'm loving it so far. Having spent about a half hour doing calculations before casting on, it's clearly the opposite of a no-brainer, but I'm stumped for what the word for that might be. A puzzle?
