Maybe you could put two fairly new knitters together so we won't feel bad if we get something great, and they get well, something that a new knitter can knit.
I'm not saying anything about anyone else on here, this is entirely me, but I'm not all that good yet. I have knit dishcloths, a hat, some scarfs, a couple of change purses and that's about it. I'd feel bad if they were disappointed.
I hope that is ok to say, this is my insecurity showing, but I'd really love to do this!
