So Last night I was stuck. I need a good beginner idea for my book, and since I'm not really in touch with what beginner's are capable of these days( see my SP7 spoilee's amazing jump from beginner knitter to stitch diva in a very short period of time). I was thinking a felted bag of some sort, but then my mind wandered into all kinds of colourwok etc...So...Here's the survey:
IF YOU WERE A BEGINNER KNITTER BUYING MY BOOK ,WHAT TYPE OF PATTERN WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE??
1.Socks for beginners ie: basic sock pattern cuff down or toe up. Maybe a little cabled something thrown in .
2. Beginner lace scarf (easy repeats to remember) no huge charts
3. Christmas stocking ( with alphabet to personalize)
4. Super easy shrug pattern knit in one piece from bottom up
5. Easy baby sweater hat and blankie
6. Felted tote bag.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
I haven't picked up my shawl since my last post, and it is sitting there looking all droopy and sad, saying finish me! block me! wear me! The baby was in the hospital all day yesterday and I had no desire to knit through my worry. Some people knit well when they are stressed or worried, I on the other hand don't . I make mistakes . Here's mister sicky as of 5 minutes ago....breaks your heart doesn't it? He looks peaceful now, but last night he cried for 5 hours straight. We were all worried he had caught the RSV virus, which is a respiratory virus that can lead to bronchitis or pneumonia at best, and can be deadly in small babies if left untreated. This little man was 10 weeks premature (which makes him very succeptible to this virus) and we had been taking him once a month for a shot to prevent RSV. Turns out, he does have an infection of some sort, but they aren't sure it's RSV or not. We should know by this afternoon when the bloodwork comes back. Cross your fingers!
