Knit-Purl Knitting

I am a beginning knitter.  I can cast on, knit, purl and cast off.  Over the course of this year I hope to choose a new skill each month and add a new pattern each month.  My goal for the year is to make each of my boys a hat for next Christmas, fight now all I can make are scarves.
