Hi. I am new to knitting but I have already learned so much from this website, I love it!
What would be a good first project for a newbie?

Hi, Ericka...and welcome
For a good first project that's easy and useful, I'd suggest some cotton dishcloths. They're small and you can learn many different stitch patterns, plus they're great in the kitchen! I love my cotton dishcloths. The yarn is inexpensive, also, so that's another good reason. Go to www.knittingpatterncentral.com (http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com) and you'll find hundreds of dishcloths to try. Happy knitting!

You could also make a scarf. That's what I did when I was first learning.

Another great thing to learn from is making a patch afghan. You can do one with multiple squares in different pattern stitches.

I think a scarf is a good place to start. Have fun!!:knitting: :knitting:
