Hello everyone,

I am very new to knitting. The only thing I can do really well right now is knit a scarf (one color only!).

I would like to know if any of you would have suggestions to give me as to a project on this site that I would be able to do.

I have printed the "Snail Shell Beach Purse" and will try it.
I also am working on getting acquainted with the abbreviations.....there are so many...

Thank you, :blush: [/b]

Besides the beginner projects here, have you considered practicing on dishcloths? They're small, varied, and can be made of inexpensive cotton so you don't feel like you're wasting money.

Just a suggestion.

Hi there! My first project is a Lighthouse dishcloth... it's a good one for me to do because it has you doing increases and decreases.

Here's the pattern :

Makes a great gift.

Also, here's a link to the abbreviations stuff on this web site. I kinda ignored it for a while but then I noticed that not only does it explain the abbreviations, it links directly to the videos that show you what to do! Woo-hoo!

For my next project, I'm going to try a hat for my son (knit flat and seamed, I daren't try those dratted double pointed needles yet!).

Good luck and let us know what you decide!
