Mitts of Steal
If you are a knitter and you are looking for something fulfilling to do, why not check out Mitts of Steal group on Ravelry. We are currently knitting mitts for dialysis patients. I am working on my second mitt. This is my first mitt, I chose to do a Selbu rose pattern for the back of the mitt. I am using Pea pod by Knit Picks in Palette and Regal which is a reddish purple color for my contrast. Several people have mistakenly called it black. Not so.
If you don't want to knit anything fancy, there are several patterns that are simple and easy to do and quick. I actually love doing the Selbu style of mitts and mittens so, this isn't a problem for me.
