Sure post a pic!

If the squares are all the same size you could crochet or sew them together. If they are different you could crochet or knit a border on the smaller ones to make them the same size.

Wow, you got a lot of stuff! The squares might be close to the same size if you block them then they'll be easier to sew together. :thumbsup:

That's a lot of yarn and squares. Cool! You could also do them kinda like a crazy quilt (all different sizes and shapes of fabric sewn together: http://pinterest.com/pin/117586240242117559/).

Do you have a place you can lay out your squares and see what they look like "fitted" together? That might give you an idea of what sizes and shapes you still need (to fill gaps), and it will also tell you what the final size of your creation will be--and what "shape" you can make, too (rectangle? square?).

Multicolor striped hats, scarves or blankets to name a few. I use leftover yarns to make hats and stuff for charity myself. I just make them up as I go. Of course if there's enough of what you personally like you could make a sweater for yourself, too.

Here's a few cool blankets. These are garter stitch so if you hate that then you might have to find another. Lol

im more worried about the squares cause i cant figure how to knit them together unlss i use a crotchet hook loop them together and just knit and back and forth down the squares.

Crocheting them together would be fine and easier than knitting. As long as you're consistent with your method they'll look great.
