I use leftovers for doll clothes, and often make baby socks from left over merino sock yarn. The last skein of sock yarn I got had enough left over for a pair of baby socks and a little bonnet hat.

Ok, bear with me. This idea is a little involved.

First, you need to plan a romantic evening with your husband (in advance, you must stop using any b/c you may be on). If you aren't married, find someone on match.com. Yada, yada, yada, in about 9 months you will have a tiny pair of feet to knit for. Ta-da! No more left over sock yarn.

Hmmm...I already have a 15yo and 12yo. No more children for me, unless they are grandchildren in about 15 years or so.

I should have plenty of sock scraps to make loads of stuff then!!

You don't sound very committed to getting rid of that sock yarn

Have you seen these books?

Not Just Socks


Not Just More Socks


They probably have them at your LYS so you can take a look at them.

Personally, I scared to death at the thought of knitting socks! It took me 6 months to knit a baby blanket. I feel sure you will find something wonderful to knit.

I posted this in Whatcha knitting, but thought I would put it here.
This is what I did with the left overs from my last pair of socks. It only used, maybe 30 grams at the most.

P.S Here's the links to the patterns.
