For my friends’ birthdays I have made them scarves! The red one is a modified Karaoke scarf (i.e. I cast on 38 stitches instead of 22 and did four cables instead of two) and I really like it. It’s made out of only one ball of Red Heart Soft Touch and it actually is really soft. I used 6mm needles so the gauge was nicely loose so that the fabric is really soft. The white-ish one is just a basic 2×2 rib but knit sideways on using Lion Brand Microspun in French Vanilla. I cast on as many stitches as I could with my straight needles (making sure it was a multiple of 4) and knitted about 20 rows. I used size 11/8mm needles and two strands of the yarn held together. It is super soft!
