People, I have needs!

1. Knitting/crocheting skateboarders or snowboarders. Need cool dudes and betties who are like totally into making and wearing cool knits while doing their thang. This is for a story I’m working on. Got any prospects? Please? Anybody?

2. Gnomes. OK, where in the good ol’ US of A can we score Alan Dart Holiday Gnome patterns. Local knitters want to know.

3. World’s Most Simple Lace Pattern: My beginning knitting class wants to knit lace. Gah!

The Baby Fern pattern from the Readers digest book on needlecraft is the easiest lace pattern I have come across.  I think it's an 8 row repeat, with every second being a rest row.

And of course - Feather and Fan.  The simlest lace pattern every, and very lace looking for newbs.

The easiest lace stitches are the variations of faggoting. Barbara Walker talks about them in Treasury 1, pages 184-185. I wouldn't start beginners on them, probably, because the patterning is worked on both odd and even rows.

You could do something like (even number of sts):
1: k1, *yo, k2tog,* repeat across, end k1.
2: p
3: k2, *yo, k2tog,* repeat across
4: p
Repeat 1-4.
You can k rows 2 and 4 for a garter-stitch ground.

A nice, easy lace that ramps it up one level is Treasury 1's Vertical Lace Trellis (p. 191). It does require both right and left-leaning decreases, but it's otherwish pretty similar to what I've described above.

think I'd be grossed out if one of my dingle-ball trims got splashed with toilet water, tho.
