Looking for a quick/simple crochet (or knit) gift for a teen or someone with a cell phone?? crochet a simple cell phone holder....I did it freehand (without a pattern)....I just basicly made a chain of about 10-15 loops and added rounds onto that until it was large enough to hold a cell phone (I did it double the size I needed and then folded it in half and stitched it together).....took about 30 minutes..... On this page are also some doilies and a potpourri sachet and beaded initial suncatchers....

For guys you can always make socks, scarves, or hats.

Thank you. Those are some very good ideas. I might go with the scarves. I am working on getting those women in the family finished first. Hopefully, that should be done by the end of the week next week, depending on whether I get interruptions or not. Thank You bunches. Karen.

I'm making everyone's gifts so we can spend our money on the baby and a little gift for each other....I made towel holders for the married women and 2 for dh's brothers and he grimaced....I think it looks manly....It's hard to make things for men isn't it??? I thought about doing the slippers (I even have a book) but not this year LOL....
