Fast projects for craft fair needed!
My mom calls me and needs/wants me to knit some things for her work's craft fair. She heads up the senior services in our county and the meals on wheels.. all that good stuff.

It's for a good cause and I want to help her out but this thing is next week

Anyone have or know any fast/neat patterns for things I could whip up for this?

thanks in advance for any help you can give :-)

I would look for patterns on www.knittingpatterncentral.com I'd use lots of bulky yarn.
Magnits is a good place for patterns
http://www.magknits.com/warm04/patterns/

Braclets
Here - Knitty.com

Ipod cozy

Cell Phone cozy

Starbucks coffee mug warmers Knitpicks There are also 2 or three patterns on KPC (Knitting Pattern Central, mentioned above)

Ornaments

Coin purses

Sunglass Case

Felted Bowl (fill it with something cute as an example so it sells)

Seat belt Snuggleer

That's all I got!

Thanks guys!

While searching for dishcloths, I found the USA ones. I'm making a missouri one at the monent and we'll see how it turns out.

You guys have some good ideas. I'll check them out :-)

These hair scrunchies are SO fast to make, and they turn out EXACTLY like the ones you buy in stores. You use nice novelty yarn and cheap purchased elastics.

I am able to make about 5 pairs a night.

So far I have 2 of those scarves that mint linked. One in baby blue and one in a lavender color.

Working on a third with the two colors held together and then moving on to...
well... probably scrunchies

I really would rather be knotting for my own use. I want to make some really fancy looking socks!
