These cabled armwarmers are knit flat then sewn up the back: http://crystalpalaceyarns.com/cpy/patterns/merino-stripes-gauntlets.html

If you wanted to give socks a try you could knit this flat with worsted weight: http://www.redlipstick.net/knit/ndlesock.html

The pieces of this top are knit flat and sewn together: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTgrace.html

thanks for all the patterns guys! i never realized you could knit so much stuff flat! i thought i was going to have to spend the rest of my knitting life making scarves!

i did go buy some size 8 circs the other day but haven't tried to knit anything on them yet... i'm a little nervous! haha i think i got a really long cord though... it's 29" so we'll see how that goes... i'm thinking of trying a really basic hat with some cheap acrylic yarn i have just to test it out...

again, thanks everyone for the patterns!

on a burning bridge, your options are minimal at best depending on where you're standing and how much breath is in your chest. if it came down to it,would you high-tail home and hide or dance on fire and enjoy the ride?

ok just be careful if you are using circs the standard way, 29" will be too long for a hat... you'll want like 16".

I vote for trying circulars. Really, just because I don't think anyone should fear their knitting. I think if you're nervous about knitting something, you should go ahead and try it. Remember, it's just knitting, and if you mess up, you can just rip out and do it again. No big deal. Plus, using circulars is really easy - all you have to do is one join, and you never have to turn or even purl unless you are doing ribbing. What could be easier than that? Knitting on circs gives you the ease of knitting garter with the look of stockinette!

Yeah, 29" is too long for a hat, but you could make a really cool felted tote bag with them! Just an idea so you don't give them away or something...

a knit flat pattern - I don't think this has been posted, but I found this pattern to adorable armwarmers the other day.  if they are too bright, you could do them in other colors.

You can even knit socks flat - - that was how I did my first pair, and it gave me a good understanding of the construction of a sock...

Thanks for posting those patterns Kayrun. I've never made socks before because they seemed too difficult. I really like the pattern on lindascraftique, I might just have to try it out. Have you made them before? How hard would you say the pattern is to follow?

I started knitting a sweater from The Learn to Knit a Sweater book I found at my local JoAnn's. 

http://www.amazon.com/Learn-Knit-Sweater-Book-1258/dp/0881958506/ref=pd_ybh_a_2/002-5326196-7840031

All the sweaters are knitted in panels and assembled later. Plus it also has instructions on how to check your gauge and even going to the basics of casting on, knit, and purl for those who need that level of help.  All the yarns recommended are the Lion Brand yarns and the one I'm working on is with Wool Ease Thick & Quick.
