Hello! I am a new knitter who is needing a break from scarves. I've knit ribbed ones, big chunky ones, fuzzy ones, you name it. Now I need something new. The only other type of thing I've knitted is a wrist band (from Stitch and Bitch); I started a hat on New Year's but didn't go very far before I lost interest - not the hat's fault, but probably the terrible head cold's fault! I could go back to it, but I thought I'd put this challenge to people.
So, here goes. I list what I have for yarn & needles below. What would you suggest I make? Any creative ideas to help me use what I have and maybe even get some new skills before I go out and get more supplies?
Size 8, 10, and 17 straight needles
Size 8 circular bamboo needles (a gift - I haven't used them yet)
1 skein of what is probably worsted weight white yarn (another gift, w/no info attached but I'm guessing it's a poly/cotton blend)
I small skein of fine light brown yarn (it's old & I lost the info - probably wool)
I would love to hear what people suggest! Thanks for giving it a thought!
