I am also a fairly new knitter. I went to my sweater class today and bought a really cool pattern. It is designed by a local artist and it's called "One Skein Wonder. It's really neat and my instructor told me I can definitely do this. Her website is www.glampyreknits.com
. I haven't been on the site, but I'm assuming there will be a picture of it and maybe you can order the pattern. The girl in the picture is modeling a very small shrug in blue, if that helps.
Behold, I am coming soon. Rev. 22:7
