Fabric lined crochet blanket. This is a really good idea for a couple of the blankets my kiddos received as baby gifts that are falling apart. I can then stitch the parts that are unraveling to the fabric.
Free knitting pattern for a super simple, easy to knit seed stitch cowl. It uses one skein of yarn, and can be knitted up in one night! I may have to learn how to do that. (point: not crochet, but I only have one yarn-y board)
