First I would like to say hello to all! :waving: I am so glad to have found some place that I can share my obsession with. I taught myself to knit earlier this year. I have made 5 scarves so far. I am so ready to move on. I would love to knit a hat, especially with winter in the near future. I have been buying books and magazines but have not taken the plunge to actually make something. I would love to make hat and scarf sets for my friends and family. I would really like to make/start a sweater before the year is over. My question is what is a good pattern to challenge myself but not overwhelm me?
