What's on your Holiday needles?

What's on your Holiday needles? What projects/patterns do you turn to when you need a quick gift? I have several standards I fall back on and this year thanks to Enchanted's Christmas Club I have a couple more. Typically I fall back to knitting dishcloths. They are a quick knit and oh so useful. Plus, there are plenty of free on-line patterns and so many gorgeous cotton yarns. Or I knit up a bunch of fingerless mitts. I love the Fetching pattern. It's quick when using a worsted or DK weight and inexpensive.

This year I'm adding the Biscuit Blanket from February's club project and the Just Enough Ruffles scarf from January's club project. Both are fast knits and again an inexpensive gift.  What you got going?

I think my fastest project has been the owl Hat by Jennie Powell. It has 18 little owls around the bottom with buttons for eyes.

I have scarves, hats and mitts going to 3 grandchildren. Shawls are knit for 2 nieces. Haven't figured out any others for now. I would love to find out where to get the fetching pattern. Janet
