A really cute cardigan is this one:
Another fun project with Christmas coming up:
I designed this one for a stocking class I am teaching at my local yarn store IRIS
The fun part about it: fast! Bulky weight yarn and knitted in the round! You could learn something new as well! How about some duplicate stitch and an hour glass heel? You could add the two-color knitting but this would be up to you. All I can say is that I have the feeling my students love it!
The pattern is available for download for $6.00 Christmas Stocking
And then one more thing: these booties are so cute and special if you like to crochet:
