I'm so in need of a quicky project right now! I am still waiting on the yarn to make some felted mittens, which were going to be my next quick thing, and my three other WIPs are long-termers - two afghans and a Christmas stocking. I want to work on something and get it done soon!

Alright, done ranting and going to go wander through my list of saved patterns and see if there is anything I missed that I could do before ambling back over to the Christmas stocking. I hate waiting for yarn...

God created man before woman because it is always necessary to make a rough draft before creating the masterpiece!

There's always a face/dish cloth. I've enjoyed making the ones with intials and giving them to folks as a little gift.

Go to my blog. Search for "Destash" and make yourself a to go cup cozy or an ice cream pint cozy with leftovers from your stash.




Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

How about little finger puppets or gnome dolls?
Headbands or kercheif/scarves
Wristlets
Simple winter scarf and/or hat
Cellphone cozy
Knit up some flowers or butterflies to add to hats, scarves, or blankets (I knit up some great butterflies and flowers from the Stitch and beach Nation patterns)

A while back I signed up for a free ball of eyelash yarn from a Mary Maxim offer.I think it is called Disco. It came the other day with patterns and a catalog. One pattern for a scarf called for two balls of this yarn, casting on 22 stitches, so I am making a skinny garter scarf with 11 stitches. It is electric blue and very shaggy, but it doesn't shed at all. It is easy and fun, and I will probably give it to a local service group that collects holiday gifts. Something like this goes very fast.

I have got a couple of projects going now -- a vest and a shawl. I just need to put fringe on the shawl and I'm about halfway done with the vest. I have sock yarn that is screaming for attention and I'm about to break down and start a pair. But I'm trying to be disciplined. I feel your pain. There is nothing worse than not having a next project to go to.

Cheers,

I'm in the same boat...I'm doing one of the hats from Melanie Falick's holiday knitting book which says it should knit up in an afternoon.
