    Question Okay, so what project would you recommend...

    ...for someone who has knit scarves & dishcloths? I can knit & purl, and that's about it. I've never tried circular needles or DPN's.

    I need something new to try.

    Recommendations?

    TIA

    Goggle dishcloth shawl. It's easy and works up fast with large needles and textured yarn

    Is it this one:

    That's funny--it's the same pattern as the very first dishcloth I ever finished, on a much larger scale of course. I think I even posted a pic of it in my gallery here.

    Thanks

    Shawls might be a good one. Socks or mittens are good too.
    there are some mittens that can be knitted flat than sewn together

    Yep that's it! I like the fringe. Love using the big needles. I'm knitting socks tonight.

    You could try your hand at cables. They aren't as scary as they look

    How about a hat? That'll give you a grip on circular needles or double-points.

    Here's the one I started with:

    Default what's on your needles or hook?

    Today I've been repairing a very loved 14 yr old baby blanket. I hope to finish tonight and get back to knitting on my socks.

    Michelle - what project did you decide to do

    Just seeing this now...I haven't picked out a project yet because things have been a bit lately. I'll need to buy supplies for whatever I make, so that's also holding me up.
