One Skein Projects

It's already mid way through October, meaning that Christmas is just around the corner.  This year, I'm knitting one, maybe two Christmas gifts plus a gift for the fur baby (can't forget her!), all of which will be easy one-skein projects. Over the past week, I have been searching through Ravelry for quick-and-easy, one-skein projects and this week I thought I would share my discoveries with you!  Some of these patterns include stripes, so they're not technically one-skein projects, BUT they are so small that you could easily use up some scrap yarn (plus they are so darn cute I just have to include them).  All the patterns mentioned are free - hope you enjoy!
