From Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson, which you should definitely own if you're a knitter who likes simple but beautiful projects, pretty pictures, and the thrill that comes with finishing a piece in under an hour.

5. Make tiny bunnies.

Ohhhhh myyyy godddddd. You can use these as toys for kids, catnip playthings for a feline friend, or just surround yourself with them for all eternity.

(A few of the patterns in this post are only accessible if you have a Ravelry account, which is free and absolutely something you should have anyway if you've made it this far.)

7. Crochet a quick and simple doily for an ornament.

Even if you've never made a doily before, don't be daunted; this pattern is totally doable and well-written. Incidentally, I have four of these in various sizes currently sitting on my desk at work.
