What do you think about the new Interweave Knits Magazine

I found a LOT of things I want to knit. I'm just not sure I'm skilled enough yet. I haven't completed a sweater of any kind. I fell in LOVE with the weekend bag- but I'm defintely not skilled enough for that... What's a newbie knitter like me to do???

I liked several of the patterns in this issue and in fact, I've already knitting up the socks: http://stoneview.typepad.com/photos/finished_objects/rib_and_cable_top_down_view.html
That was a very fun pattern to knit but I'd not recommend it as a first time sock knit. Maybe 2 or 3 pairs under your belt first.

There are some great newbie friendly bags in the SnB books! Check those out.

The Weekend Bag is gorgeous, but, my goodness, it must weigh a TON. While I was at an LYS, we were talking about it, and someone noticed that the model's knuckles are white and it looks like she's straining to hold onto the thing.

Generally, all you need to make an Interweave Knits pattern is a good attitude. Most of the patterns aren't too challenging, and even if they are, they're really well written.

You're as capable as you believe yourself to be, so reach for the top!!

P.S. I'm so glad you're using the sock yarn!

What's a newbie to do? Knit what you want and like, m'dear!

You'll gain new skills and learn techniques, be encouraged to finish the object, and then really enjoy it when you're done! What more could you ask for?

Knit on!
