:) Hello. I have an injury that is keeping me down for quite some time and am looking for some very easy things to knit. I have knitted some in the past but still consider myself a beginner. Any patterns or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanka.

Hi Renee
Welcome! I am new also and like you haven't knitted in awhile. I knit hats for retarded adult for Christmas. It keeps me busy and gives some Adults (kids) a Christmas gift which otherwise they don't get much. You could also knit a prayer shawl that people give to those who are fighting an illiness or other issues. Don't really need a pattern. I got one when I had my back surgery two months ago. It is knitted and is about two feet wide and three feet long.
Blessings
Pat

Hi Renee & sorry to see you are not well. Knitting is great therapy when you are stuck indoors & it helps relieve 'cabin fever'.
Hats, scarves & baby blankies are all good items to knit when you are looking for quick & easy. Check out the yarn sites for free patterns. I just posted a bunch of them for the last topic so here they are for you.
Try all the yarn sites. They have loads of what you are looking for.

Try baby hats on circular needles. Or scarves.

When I had shoulder surgery I couldn't knit, even with circulars, but for some reason I could crochet (and the doctor said okay as long as I kept my arm in the sling). I crocheted many cotton doilies and a couple of alter cloths during that down time.

Good luck with your recovery.
