Hi everyone,

Does anyone have suggestions for a good first stranded project?  I love Eunny Jang's Endpaper Mitts, but would never use fingerless gloves, so they're out.  Similiarly, the lovely pirate hat that I've seen as a FO around here is out, once again since I would never wear it.  I *heart* Eunny Jang's Deep-V Argyle vest, but many people seemed to have problems with the fit in the shoulders, so I'm not sure if I should try it -- it takes me months to complete a project, so it's pretty traumatic for me if it doesn't fit.  I do need a small felted messenger bag, but haven't been able to find a good pattern that I like.


So, any suggestions?  I appreciate the help!

What about mittens? I converted Eunny's Endpaper Mitts to full mittens - some details are on my blog at http://threadoryarn.blogspot.com/2006/12/progress-on-endpaper-mitts.html If you want to do this and need more details than the very few I put up, PM or email me (email addy on the blog)

If not mittens, what would you like to knit? (hat, socks, ipod cozy, coffee cup cozy, something else in the round, or flat or ?) Then you can 'plug in' the stitch pattern you like to a basic pattern for that item. Sometimes it's easier that way. (And sometimes it isn't, but at least it's a place to start.)

Socks?  You could plug in a simple chart pattern and use it just for the cuffs.
