Well, I voted scarves and such, because I do so many smallish projects. But it's hard to pick just one kind of knitting!

I went with socks sock socks, but I knit lace too. I think I split my knitting time quite equally between the two!

Dishcloths - because I'm lazy and like not having to worry too much about gauge. ;-)

socks right? ;o))) Although I do knit everything else too

I would have liked to pick a few but I picked socks since I am always knitting socks.

I voted for socks, socks, socks but felted things was a close 2nd.

Sweaters, for sure. Followed by lace. Then socks.

I had to vote twice... I'm a sock gal, but lately I'm also on a toys tangent, and I always knit baby things (blankets, hats, sweaters, whatever) for charity.

Well, my choice isn't even on the list.
My favorite kind of knitting is the sort you do with stringy stuff and pointy sticks.
The stringy stuff is almost always yarn, though it doesn't have to be. I'm not above knitting with rope, electrical cable, wire, or whatever else I take a notion to work with. (Not that I've actually done projects with all those materials - just that I can easily picture myself doing so.)
And the pointy sticks can be anything that can manipulate the stringy stuff into knitted stitches. Including, but not limited to, knitting needles, chopsticks, pencils, twigs from a tree, and my fingers.
In other words, my favorite kind of knitting is anything that catches my interest.

I knit everything, but I always have socks on my needles. They are like comfort food, and I just feel so damn clever when they are done. And.....everyone else thinks I am so damn clever. Self patterning yarn just blows people away, especially if you don't tell them about the self patterning part. Socks got even easier when I made the second sock first. :) I think the bottom line is that when I am old, and in the "home", they can just put the needles and yarn in my hands and I'll just knit this really looooong scarf. I once knit with a cast on my hand, so you know that,like many of you, I am truly addicted.

...knitted kreatures. (other people call them toys)

I had to vote for the "something else" because you left off "all of the above" from your list!

Something else entirely, that something else would be dishcloths!!

I knit a lot of afghans. Not really by choice but some of our family is really big on cuddling under things and my 6 yo can't sleep if he isn't under more than a sheet. And he is always asking for another something. I also do hats, scarves, socks, gloves and mittens.
Oh yeah the furballs were always on our afghans so I made them their own also.

I need an all of the above option! I've always got a few pairs of socks, some type of sweater and some other misc. things on the needles.

Ditto for the "all of the above" option. I usually have several projects going--one is always easy (like a scarf). I knit at night, and if I'm too tired to get past a difficult point (short-row shoulders, marking buttonholes, etc.), I will use my "automatic pilot" project until I have my wits about me again.
