I'm going on a loooong cruise in July and am trying to figure out what I should knit on the boat. Its is tough: I need something that I won't get bored of, but something that isn't too difficult (because I won't have access to the internet or books to help me figure something out). Right now on my list is Fetching and Coachella.
I'm concerned about Fetching (left photo) because I've never knitted mittens before - I would also prefer to knit something I could use this season. Coachella (right photo) scares me because I've never knitted anything that is a top. In fact, knitting sweaters, vests, all those things that actually have to fit your body properly, scare the crap out of me. Although I like the idea that I'd be knitting something I could use this season, maybe even on the cruise. I was reading through the pattern and I'm a little in the dark of how holding the stitches (for the arm holes) and such would work. Advice or other patterns anyone can suggest?
