This was the project that got me interested in knitting. I was browsing the internet for baby shower gifts and came across the Baby Knits Kit, by Sara Lucas. It includes 20 patterns, everything from clothing to toys to scrapbooks and mobiles. The kit comes with yarn for a pair of booties. So I started with those in order to learn the basics. I never finished them, but I learned to knit, purl, do several increases and decreases, as well as a couple seams. Then I started on the elephant, where I learned to knit in the round.
