You could try making a lovely woollen bag. They tend to be expensive in shops but you could design your own for allot less

Cushion covers - complicated ones as they are small items, blankets, mini blankets for the foot of the bed, items for premature babies - at the moment knitting octopuses for the nurseries is “the thing” as apparently they feel like the umbilical cord.

Most maternity units want prem baby hats and blankets. Quick to knit and use up spare wool, DK or 4 ply. They sterilise then so no need to wash before you send.

Scarves and gloves to be given to a local charity before Christmas. Yes, I know it is clothing but a great way to use up leftover yarn. I know of a city where knitters tie scarves to some railings with a notice saying 'help yourself'

I like to knit as I find it relaxing I don’t want to knit clothing and I haven knitted lots of toys for grandchildren. Has anybody got any suggestions for something else?
