I'm in search of a simple project to work on while my dear daughter is running around and playing with my ball of yarn. I'm getting to a point of the sweater where I really have to pay attention. It's hard to do when she's yelling at me to "mommy.... see me..." I can't not pay attention as she's usually pretending to be a puppy or about to jump off the couch attacking my ball of yarn.
I picked up the book "The Knitting Directory" by Alison Jenkins. It's all about basic technique and gives basic patters for all kinds of stuff. I'm going to see if there is any interesting pattern I can do repeatedly.
