Christmas tree ornaments? Easter eggs? Flowers for embellishment on other projects? Finger puppets? Or you could take, say, gloves or Knucks and knit the fingers in different colors.

I use all of my yarn scraps (and my friends' yarn scraps! Otherwise they just throw them out or keep them in a drawer for years) for making funky stocking caps.

A small amount of yarn is also good for making a small change purse

Or, if you're still on a sock kick, make a nice pair of socks for a dear stuffed animal. My stuffed moose have many knitted accessories made of scrap yarn.

I was looking at the yarn on Knit picks the other day, and clicked on the small add ( bottom right ) that said "sock yarn". If Im not mistaken, there was a pattern there somewhere for a kids cardigan made up of various types of sock yarn. Sounded like a neat idea! Karen

here is a link for kids sweaters using sock yarn. I don`t think this was the site I had seen, but it might give someone an idea on what to use left-over sock yarn on.

Simply Sock Yarn Patterns

( BTW, I saw the "Devan" pattern online just today on the knitty ... )

Cute sweaters!

Here's a cute headband.

Here's a link for ankle socks with pompoms. It looks like it wouldn't require much yarn.

Hey, I knitted socks and scarves for my wooden, jointed, Bali kitties. I put them on in the fall and take them off in the spring. They sit on a shelf. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I use leftover yarn for contrasting toes and heels and also for doll clothes for my daughters. Lots of ideas.
