Looking for patterns similar to what is in Romantic Hand Knits
I'm new to knitting but picked up the book Romantic Hand Knits at a store yesterday. I fell in love with it. I know much of it is beyond my level, so I thought I'd post a question here and see if any one had any more simple suggestions that are similar to items found in that book.
Also, if anyone has experience with any of the patterns in Romantic Hand Knits I'd love to hear what they are. I'm very excited about having found this book and hope to work up to some of the items in here.
I know that there are tons of "similar" patterns you can probably find but not knowing which type of items were of most interest to you, don't know where to really direct ya... That said, if you really like this designers work, following are some links to some free patterns that she has designed (some of which are in the book you ref'd).
I read some of your posts and I would tell you to check out the show kitty gritty. it is great because they talk about different projects, rate them, and show a lot of basics that you might not have yet. I started out teaching myself and that show REALLY helped me. They also have a lot of great projects that they demonstrate and then online they have the pattern which helped me learn to read patterns! I posted a pattern for a cabled - braided scarf that is pretty easy and will make people think you have been at it for a while if you are looking for something a little different to try. Good luck!
