knitting dilemma
I don't know what I want to make next....it's frustrating because my hands are yearning to knit! I know I want something I can finish fast..

what kind of things have you tried so far? I know a lot of ppl here likemaking socks. dishclothes are great for trying out different stitches.

I have tons of cotton for dishcloths. I plan on making my mom a lot of kitchen stuff for her birthday..which isn't until November, so I kind of deserted the idea. I thought about a scarf..but it's getting warm so that probably isn't the GREATEST idea.

novelty yarn scarves are fast and gift-able... washcloths are fun and fast... cell phone cozies, small purses, are all fun ideas... shrug-type sweaters are a little longer but still pretty quick depending on the yarn you have.... check the free patterns here for accessories/ kitchen stuff/ fun stuff...

it's not that I don't know what I want to knit...it's that there is sooo much that I don't know what to do next!

If you want to do a scarf, you could do one that is airy and lacy that is not meant for warmth. Something like this, which isn't as difficult as it looks at first glance.
