WTF? You mean you can't think of anything?? :shock: OMGoodness!! Where do I begin? *ekgheiy bites her nails* How about a pair of socks? Or no ... how about you start on a winter coat so that it can be ready-to-wear when the season hits. I totally wanted to make the blue coat in this (http://pages.e-yarn.com/6030/PictPage/1921012278.html) book, but #1 my list of things to knit is soooo long and I never got to it and #2 I really don't want to work with wool and I can't think of what else would do in it's place. I considered Bernat Berella '9', but still ... the coat was never made. *sigh*

Oh :thinking: ... the socks idea is quick. Perhaps the coat idea isn't so quick? Or maybe it is with such chuncky yarn :??

Socks, dishcloths, potholders, coffee bras, hats, small stuffed toys, hair scrunchies, fingerless mitts....

Baby socks! I have been having so much fun making them. THIS (http://www.p2designs.com/pdfs/ptn-SoxTinyToe.pdf) is the pattern I have been using. It was also great for me because I have only done one pair of adult socks before these but they were top down. These are toe up and were a great learning experience.

I am sure they will! I used Silver's sock tutorial as well. Silver ROCKS! :inlove: I think I have a pretty good handle on sock basics now thanks to her. Can't wait to customize my next pair.

Silver's sock class is HERE (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm)

It was really easy! She walks you through it like you have no clue what you are doing with a sock, which I think is perfect! Once you do it once, it seems to make a lot more sense.
