Welcome and have fun.

Maybe a multicolor scarf? Or a blanket?
Do you crochet? If so, granny squares maybe.

A shaggy bag or a shaggy blanket. Cut yarn into shorter lengths and knot together securely, leaving long ends. Then knit, with all the ends on the right side. Works well with garter stitch and reverse stocking stitch. Bag could be lined.

Thanks all for the links. I don't remember which one I started out at to get to this one (it was a link on one of the links posted above). But, I loved this one

I made one last night (I have quite a few skeins of Homespun) and it's adorable and will make great "just because" gifts. My grandnieces are going to love them!

Did you check out the Stashbuster Idea thread in Pattern Central? There are a lot of small project ideas and pattern links in there.
