Hi I'm from NJ and I've been crocheting for a while. I'm starting to knit and I really like it.
I don't know what project I should start out with. Maybe a scarf?

Hello and welcome. I am happy you found us.

A scarf is a loooooong undertaking for a first knitting project. How about a cotton dish cloth? There are 100's of patterns and they are wonderful to use.

Hi there! Welcome to the parlor! Scarfs and dishcloths are both good ideas. It depends on how quickly you want a finished object. Very Happy

Hello and welcome, to you! When I started knitting again, I started a scarf that I thought would put me in the loony bin. So, I made an afghan instead! I used a huge needle and five colors put together and did a basketweave stitch. It was pretty easy and quick and it got me back into knitting in no time flat.
