The one titled "Grandmother's Favorite". I think it is a great pattern for just learning, plus it is pretty quick to knit up.[/url]
So funny! I do have one of these my grandma made for my mom. I'll have to make one myself. I've already made funky slippers that my dad says his grandma made him, which I didn't know until after I finished mine! Weird!

Welcome Danielle! Cute avatar pic. It looks like a puppy with wings. Happy knitting. If you haven't discovered the "Getting Started" section of this site yet, that also has a couple of good beginner patterns on it.

Welcome Rennagayle too!

Thank you, Amy. I received your CD in yesterday's mail (fast shipping!). I played with it a little last night, and can already see that it's going to be a great help to me. Even though I'm not nearly ready for doing socks, I did watch the bonus CD of you knitting the baby socks. Seeing that done, verses being told how in print, makes all the difference in understanding for me. It's kind of like a lightbulb coming on in my head. :D

Thank you Amy and Carol! I will check out both places and see what I can find.

The avatar is Mr Wiggles with wings...that dog/alien is so cute!


Amy- I have a question for you. To clarify your video on cables- do you knit/purl 5 rows like normal and then do 1 row of twist?

Thank you !!!

Danielle

Yes, exactly. The number of rows between twists will vary depending on the cable pattern, but that's the idea. I think that's how many I did in the video; whatever I say in the video is how many I did; that sounds about right.
