kristinw~I think it would be great for a beginner
...the hardest part I had was getting the gauge...using worsted weight and trying to get what is it 7/8sts per inch? I couldn't get it with Lamb's Pride worsted unless I knit them prolly on a size 00 after trying 0 I gave up
...I would suggest trying to carry the yarns in both hands too this will help with your tension...When I first started color work I carried both in the same hand and couldn't keep the tension... also another thing that helps me is to make sure after the 3rd st of one color I carry/weave the other color...this has helped with my tension as well...
I can't wait to see your pair and if you have any questions just ask...also on ravelry they have a KAL going
