Any suggestions for a first knitting project for my newly arrived grand daugther :XX:
The booties and blanket pattern at Fabulous Yarns are cute, simple, and free. Look here:
I've purchased from her before, she's easy to deal with.

My first baby project was a hat, booties, and baby washcloth.First Knitted Baby Set
There are lots of easy patterns online. Just look through the patterns at Knitting Pattern Central!.
Here is a simple pattern for making a baby bibhttp://www.knitlist.com/2003/babybib.htm
I made this sweater for my neice and I thought it was really easy to make. http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babysweyokecard.htm
Once I made some hats and baby socks (little socks tend to stay on better than booties in my experience) I started on toys... Jean Greenhowe has some wonderful dolls! Garnstudios has some lovely children's clothing patterns for free on their sites.
Thanks for finding this pattern. I bought a ball of this yarn and was looking for a pattern for a co-worker who's daughter is having a baby shower this weekend!!
I love this sweater, and it has fit her for so long. I would suggest knitting it a little longer than it says. It would still fit her except it is to short.
hmmm well I'll just have her give it back so I can add more to it when it is too small. Thanks for that tip
