I've got a couple of patterns in the new (winter) issue of Knit Simple. Note that the photos below are from the magazine. I sent them off to the magazine too quickly to photograph them myself.
These mitts are worked sideways in worsted weight yarn. They knit up very quickly - you could make two pairs in a weekend - and are great for stash busting.
Another very quick, stash busting project the ruffled wristers are worked in DK weight yarn. They can be worn with the ruffle toward the hand or flipped around with the ruffle on the top.
The official release date for the issue is 1/26, but I've heard from a few people that they've already seen it available at their LYS. Any who subscribe should have it already.
