I am part of a mother/daughter knitting group, that is just trying to get off the ground. It started out with a certain group of folks, and due to circumstances, had morphed a bit, and is now sort of trying to get off the ground.
We have quite a few really novice knitters who have more or less successfully managed most of the way through a garter stitch scarf and that sort of thing...mostly sort of playing with their knitting and not doing any particular projects.
I've been sort of elected as one to start moving the group forward a bit and trying to have us maybe knit the same project to help "bond" us, and help them move their skills along a bit.
So...what are some easy, fun patterns that include maybe knitting and a little purling, and some increases and decreases...and whatever other little beginner things you think would be good.
I started out with a Booga Bag...might not be a bad choice, but I wanted to hear from all you experts!!
