Gift-giving season is upon us, and I would like to do nice hand-made gifts for several people on my list. I know many people knit washcloths and make soap, and combine them into lovely gift packages, but alas I have no soap-making skills. I do, however, have baking skills.
I am looking for suggestions for knitting/baking tie-ins. The main thing I can come up with so far is knitted dishcloths with cookies, but there's no real connection between the two items. I thought about pot holders, but really, a knitted pot-holder is not ideal (I don't think - am I wrong?). I could always knit some cupcakes/cookies and bake cupcakes/cookies to go along with it but that is kind of cheesy- I'd like to knit something a bit more practical. The only other thing I thought of would be a scarf, hat or mittens with some specialty hot cocoa and cookies .. sort of like a "cold weather survival kit" .. but not everyone I know needs scarves/hats/mittens.
Anyway, I know it's a long shot, but I also know there are some incredibly creative and talented people in this community who might be able to help me think of knitted items that could be packaged with cookies/quickbreads/jarred cookie mixes or the like.
