Ok, I have been woring on some Panta's and they are GREAT! Are there any other QUICK projects that can be used as Christmas Gifts? I know of mittens, scarves and hats, but there MUST be more!!!!

Thanks for all your help!

Slippers
Washclothes/bath sponges
Dishclothes
Potholders
Coasters
Socks

That's all I can think of right now, but go to Crochet Pattern Central to find patterns, once you know what you want to make.

baskets too.  Don't forget baskets - cotton for kitchen, cotton or nylon for bathroom and whatever else for whatever else - you can also make plant pot cosies too to dress up a boring clay pot.

Wtih baskets - you can make the basket, fill it with whatever you like and make a whole well gift basket.  There is a great site that has a huge collection of gift ideas mostly all crocheted that are all arranged together.  You could make a whole bath thing - make a basket, a cotton bath pouff, an eye mask, blah blah blah.... the ideas are endless.

I will have to try and find that link for that site.  I am sure I have it somewhere.  I have been to it several times but unfortunately I can't right now - both kids are up so I need to put on my mommy face and leave the computer alone...

My MIL called me and said I ought to have something to ship out to family in a day or two. Yeah, thanks for the notice. SO, I made these little potpourri satchels that look like Christmas ornaments. I knit, but basically I made a sack about the size of my fist that had about two inches sticking up from the top. I made a few eyelets while I was doing it and added a drawstring. Then I went to Michael's and bought some of their dollar rack potpourri and stuffed it. I did add a little angel to where the drawstring ties, but it looked fine without it. I used Red Heart plush yarn in red and some silvery eyelash yarn knitted along with it. I made the thing up as I went, but maybe it'll spark something for you. I'd originally intended on stuffing it with a few small Christmas ornaments, then I thought maybe one of those microwave rice bags...and then I realized I just wasn't all that motivated considering my time restraint.

Do you mean Ultimate Gift Baskets?  Some of the links might not work, but you can get some ideas from that site.

That is the site!  I have gotten great ideas from it even if I didn't use the exact pattern that they suggested it has been pretty helpful.

It was just a thought on making a whole complete package you know?
