So i have decided that this year my 1 1/2 yr old daughter will be wonder woman for halloween. i kinda have her outfit planned out except for the boots. at first i thought rain boots but i knew in texas heat she wouldnt have that at all so...maybe knitted.

i need all kinds of advice, from the needles to buy, the yarn, and the pattern. i have never knitted before, this will be my first attempt. is this too much for me? please let me know. all advice is appreciated!

I think it is neat that you want to knit an outfit for your daughter for halloween, but - hate to dampen your enthusiasm, but if you haven't knit before, it would not be easy. Also, knitting boots (apart from being difficult as it requires more advanced shaping) is not necessarily going to be cooler than rain boots. Is there any way you could go to a thrift store and buy some baby cowboy boots?

It would be easier to knit the boob holders (can't remember what it is really called!) and there are some patterns out there for those. But again, requires shaping, which isn't real easy for beginners unless they have a teacher helping them.

But - knitting for your daughter is a wonderful idea! You could start with a little blankie!

 Tongue I think you are right. Thanks for your honesty!!! I'm always up for learning a new craft so maybe I will start with a blankie. I have a knitting for dummies pocket size book. I should pick it up to see what it has to say. Thanks
