The Butterfly Kisses blanket and the Atlantic Waves blanket are going to have a certain pattern to go by. But you are welcome to work on those if you think you can. I have only been knitting since Oct of 2007, so I totally understand what it feels like to only what to do a simple pattern. It is perfectly fine to do what ever pattern you choose (as long as it is not a blanket that is using the same pattern). I used garter stitch (knit every row) on the first couple blankets I worked on. MAmaDawn is our director so she will have to make the final decision on the blankets. We are so glad to have you!! We are a wonderful group to work with...you'll see!!
Thank you very much. I wouldn't mind doing the autumn leaves blanket. I just know that I need to try and stay within the limits that I have. I have made one baby blanket but it was 24 blocks that I had to put together. I think it turned out rather nicely but I made it so I should think that.
I started knitting in June of last year but I stopped for awhile, I was carrying a really full schedual trying to finish my degree and had to focus on that. I just recently started back up and have been a knitting fool recently.
I think that this would be a great way for me to try and expand my horizins, or atleast I hope so.
I'm sure you guys are a wonderful group to work with, everything I have read makes me think that. Hopefully, I can fit it well...
