I am new to knitting. I picked it up as a stress relief, and my partner and I began with a semiprivate lesson at a lys here in New York (Annies on the UES). First session was knit only and the second session on Sunday will be casting on and purl. So I have knitted one skein + a sample piece that they gave us that I keep knitting and undoing to try different stitches (that I invent). I have taken to this faster than I expected, and the stress relief that the yarn provides is greater than expected as well. I will probably convert my first project into a scarf.
What would you recommend as project two? A scarf with a more complex pattern, or do you think I should go to a hat or something else?
Thanks for the advice guys -
