I was wondering if anybody had any ideas of what I could make for very little $$$$ and very little time as holiday gifts for my teenage friends. Lace is good, small stuff is good, and it MUST MUST MUST use natural fibers for softness.

I'm right here with you on wondering about gift ideas with fast working time and small fiber amounts. My daughter's birthday is in less than 2 weeks and she just told me she'd like something made from our dog's fur (who just passed over) for her birthday. I don't have much of Mattie's fur (our dog) and very little time to go from raw fiber to finished washed/wrapped product/gift. I was desperately trying to think of something I could make for her that would not need to be worn. I just spoke with her on the phone and she suggested something along the line of a keychain-bauble-type thing. WooHoo! What a relief! That could take on just about any form or shape, and I'll have enough time and fiber, barely on both accounts, to accomplish it! So whudaya think..... ball-shaped form or one of the squiggly-looking twizzler type things to hang from a keychain?? .... now I just need to find the stashed fur....
Merry, I think a ball shape would be nice. Less likely for it to be caught on keys.
Someone else mentioned soap sacks. I'm making the melt & pour soap and knitting soap sacks. I'm going to try knitting an Icord to make soap on a rope, too. And a washcloth to match. I saw some wristbands in Stitch & Bitch (the GEEK ones) I may try out, too. My goal is to knit something for everyone by Thanksgiving from the Tidings of Joy kit so I can give them out at dinner. Those needles are soooo little!

That's a wonderful idea. That way those ornaments will be on trees to enjoy.
