I have used old yarn like that to knit lap blankets for nursing home residents out of it. You can mix & match all different colors in the same blanket. As long as you use acrylic yarn to make it easier to wash/dry, the ones I've made have been well received.

The ones I knit usually end up being 36" long and 25" wide.
