What about a shrug for the girls?

Prolly inappropriate for dad, but willy warmers for the other men in your life? Gag gift!

Dad, how about hot pads in his colors if he cooks?

What about something like a crocheted football with the team name on it so he can throw it at the T.V. when something bad happens? 

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

For the men - what about beer cosies.  Also, there is a pattern floating around the net for beer can hats.  For the risque - there are willie warmers, and I did stuffed boob pillows for my male friends one year.  What about crocheting an individualized stocking and filling it with some of their favourite goodies and small toys, or a sub to a magazine like Maxim, or TV guide - whatever?

Hi Ezri_B

Try this site, it might inspire you to creat something different.  Just click on the different sections of the fridge and see the scarfs that this woman makes.



If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

I've started already. I had to; I wanted to pick up some yarn and miscellaneous sewing supplies on sale the other day and I told myself I couldn't unless I made Christmas gifts. I've started on some dishcloths for small gifts, and I'm applying all the power of my brain--hear the squirrel turning in its wheel?--to thinking of what to make for my sister. I'm thinking a crochet hat from the Vogue Crochet Hats On the Go book or maybe a panta. I'd also like to crochet her a shawl but she probably wouldn't wear it, so I'm thinking about a small, simple shoulder purse; then again her name has five letters and ends with an i so if I made a Fendi knockoff bag I could put a tag with her name on it. I was already thinking of making a sewn chapstick keyring for her, but now I've seen crocheted ones in the Completed Projects area, maybe I should try to invent my own.  Or maybe I should just ask her what she wants.

I haven't even started to think about anyone else.

Maybe I'll just give everyone a donation to the Human Fund in his/her name.

Hey, I like that! It would have to be a rugbyball though  Smiley. Thanks for the golf links Ezri_B!
I just found a pattern for a dolphin in an old crochet magazine, I think I'll give that a try that for my nephew (he's two)

Hi all - I'm new here (well, been lurking for a while, but not posting) and thought I'd throw my .02 in ... I've actually started believe it or not. It wasn't planned ... LOL I started knitting a wrap from a skein of the JoAnn Rainbow Boucle just to play with it. I love how it works up. Took it on vacation so that's all I would have to take. I knit much slower than crochet and I didn't want anything to grow too fast in my lap ... just way too hot in the car and on planes. Went back to the store last week and found some other colors I liked better than this teal variegation, so this one will be a gift. I've got some afghans/throw in the planning stages for other family members. I'll most likely use Homespun and and RH Light & Lofty for these since those yarns work up so fast! I just did a L&L throw as a spur of the moment wedding gift last week! It turned out beautiful! There are tons of other things I want to make for those on my list, but I'm starting with the afghans/throws first. Then if I have time, I'll do some shawls/wraps, purses and scarves for others. I'm going to order my yarn next week, so I can get started when school starts - and the new TV shows. Smiley

I love hearing all the ideas others are coming up with!
