Some sponges for the kitchen sink. My last store-bought sponge fell apart so instead of buying a new one, I just whipped one out. Oh, and you can toss it in the wash if it gets gunky.
I got my niece a necklace for her baptism, but I didn't have a gift box for it. So I knitted a little necklace pouch.
It was also my niece's birthday, so I made her a blanket for her dolls.
