Are there any newbie knitters who want to do a knitalong? I don't have a pattern in mind but suggestions are welcome. I really don't want to make a scarf or winter stuff because I'm in hawaii. I could use a support group. I have purl and knit down but haven't actually made anything yet!

I'd be down! I've finished a garter stitch scarf, and am currently working on a stockinette purse like this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=68277.0

I just learned how to knit!  But I haven't learned how to knit in the round yet, that's the next class in 1 1/2 weeks. 

I'd love to join the beginners knitalong, and that purse is so cute!  It looks like I would just knit the back and front separately and piece them together?  And I haven't done an anything-along, so I'm super excited!  Plus I'm tired of scarves.

you just knit one big rectangle, then fold it over and seam it, then attach it to the handles! seems easy-peasy! I'm about 4 inches into it and i'm using it to learn purling.

I like that purse and think I can handle it. A stockinette is knit 1 row purl the next...? I will just use the scrap yarn I already have and I have handles too! Yay, a stash project!!

I did a panta for my first project, and found it was nice and easy - introduced increases and decreases, which were less scary than I thought.  In a cotton yarn it might be hawaii friendly...

Check out the Panta knitalong http://www.panta-along.blogspot.com/ There's a couple threads here about it. Should be good for beginners, it's a rib pattern which uses both knit and purl stitches.
