help! I need something quick and easy to knit!
My best friends birthday is coming up in 2 weeks, and I haven't started anything for her yet! I made her a scarf for xmas, so I can't do that again... any ideas???? I haven't really gotten into mittens or socks yet, so don't really want to try to learn those in 2 weeks unless it's REALLY EASY Maybe a small purse? Anyone???
Ideas appreciated

How about a hat?

Do you have the Fiber Trend Clog pattern? You could easily do that in 2 weeks. Or a felted bag?

how about fetching from knitty? http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer06/PATTfetching.html

There is a thumb to do but it's not very difficult. And VERY quick to knit. If you don't want to do cables, there are tons of other patterns for wristwarmers. Basically just knit a tube, leave a space for the thumb and you're done.

Fetching is great! It was the first time I actually sat and paid attention to the cables that I was doing to make sure they came out right and they were really very easy to do. I even incorporated those cables into another pattern I am making (I am having second glove syndrome right now...lol) Very good choice I would say!

Fetching sounds like a good idea.

Also, the felted trivet (hot pad) in the book Felted Knits by Beverly Galeskas is a quick and easy knit. I love the one I made and use it all the time. There are a lot of other great ideas in the book, too.

Booga Bag

Soap bag and face cloth with a fancy bar of soap (put these in a basket with a few nice tea bags, a few fancy chocolates, a handful of bath oil beads, and a small candle and it becomes a pamper basket).

Slipper socks (large needles, double strand of worsted yarn)

Hot water bottle with a knitted cover

Teddy bear

Her own learn to knit kit complete with her own private instructor

Panta winter headband from Garn Studios free patterns, or Calorimety headband from Knitty (both free patterns)

she's working on her phd, so alas this would be counter-productive for her and her homework time though
I did go through all of my sorry to say lacking pattern collection and just decided to grab some leftovers from my stash and start a quick hat. Thankfully, I had some leftover yarn (blue) from the scarf I made her, so I am double stranding that with some white for the brim and will switch to just white for the bulk of the hat. Yay for double strand on size 11 circs!
