I am making "wristers", fingerless mittens. Knit up in a hurry using sock yarn. Lots of free patterns on the internet.

How about knitted Christmas ornmaments? I have knitted bells and stockings, there are plenty of patterns free on the internet. I can't post a link. Last year I made everyone red and white mini stockings, this year I'll attempt a tree, several years back I knitted bells. One year I knitted all the females potholders which could also be used as facial washcloths. I gave them thev choice.

I was thinking about knitting coffee cup cozies (coffee collars). I just need to find a good pattern. I have knitted ornaments in the past and stockings. It depends on how many people you are planning on giving to.

Scarves are always wonderful, knit in some fabulous expensive yarn ( since you can make one with a skein or ball it is not cost prohibitive ).

what about pot scrubbers? I crochet mine but you can knit them as well. I love mine and so does everyone I give them to.

I realize its a little late, but these were a huge success with my 3 hooker friends, :-) I had picked up Christmas kitchen towels last year and made the towel rings, dish cloths and hot pads to coordinate. All cotton yarn and instant gratification!

I used a pony tail holder (round covered elastic thing) for the beginning round instead of making my own loop.

What a grest idea, using pony tail holders for the towel ring! I bought a pkg of the holders to make crocheted pony tail scrunchies and have a lot of the holders left over......Now I know what I can use some of them for. Thanks!!!

gardenway, I was going to look for solid rings to make more, but the girls said that they really prefer the ponytail holders because of the flexibility :-)
