If they're wool you can arrange them in swirly patterns on fabric and needle felt it to make a cool piece of fabric.

Or, make a "crazy lasandri hat"!

I saw a picture of a scarf recently that was knit with short lengths of yarn.  You knit across & back (garter, stockinette, whatever) and then switch to a new piece of yarn, leaving the ends hang for a fringe along the edge.  The scarf was wide and worn folded lengthwise, and the multi-color fringe along the long edge was what made it so special.  I wish I could find the picture. . .

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

Have you seen the rug from "One skein"?  It uses odds and end of yarn, and its gorgeous.

Well this scarf was made with fabric scraps, but I'm sure you could adapt the concept for those bits of yarn you can't throw away. (I can't get rid of the nicer scraps, either! LOL  Cheesy)

My rule of knitting life: there is no such thing as leftover yarn, only excuses to go on a color and texture explorations. I never buy more than one ball of anything. Too boring. If you take a trot through my website, you'll see what I mean and though I have scarf ideas there, really, this goes way beyond scarves.....Jane
