What should I knit with it?

I have been looking for some 4 ply out of my stash, which isn't alot, and I found a few balls, but I have no idea what I should knit with it, has anyone got any suggestions about what I could make with these odds and ends?

A quick update on what I have been doing

Sorry I have not been posting in a while, I had been quite busy with Christmas shopping and rapping presents lol. Just to let you know I hadn't finished both jackets, I was half way threw knitting the second one and I found out the little twins were born, but surprisingly, they both turned out to be about 6-1/2 pounds each, which is about an average baby weight ruffly, grrrrr. The first jacket I had already completed would not of fit either of them so I just scrapped the project, I will either knit them something else or just something for me but I don't know what.

My Mum and Dad have agreed to get me the combs and clamps for the chunky ribber for Christmas so I am very thankful for that, I will just wait and see what Christmas day brings lol.
I think tomorrow we are putting up the Christmas tree and decorations which I love doing so I am defiantly taking part in that, I know it is a bit late to be putting up decorations but we have been cleaning and sorting stuff out in the house. Has anyone else got there decorations up yet?

Is anybody after anything particular for Christmas or are you all just looking forward to spending time with your families?

The Bond Yarn Grabbers



This is a video I made today of the Bond yarn grabbers that I came accross as I was sorting threw my machine knitting box, they are really useful and I don't know why Bond doesn't make these anymore because there doesn't seam to be any problems with them.

If you manage to find some second hand then I would definatly give them a go.

By the way sorry the video isn't brilliant quality, I couldn't find my usual camera so I had to use my phone camera and the tripod doesn't work with that hence the camera being a little shakey because I was holding it, lol. In my opinion this isn't a very good video but hopefully it get's the point across and some of you find this video helpful.
