I love bulky wool yarns, but I've ended up with an small array of leftover balls and portions of balls.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I could be doing with these?  All are 100% wool but seem awfully bulky for felting... Plus most are Rowan and I think I'd feel really guilty if I felted it!  The project on the left is something I started to learn short rows, and got bored with.

Since I'm a noobie I can't post the photo of the leftover goodies directly, but here's a link:

Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

you could make some mittens, or little fingerless mittens
or a little purse.

Wow, why didn't it occur to me to make hats, especially seeing as I've been browsing the new Knitty issue.  I'm gearing up to head to the tropics, so it's hard to think of hats!

I like the Urchin idea, then I can learn a new CO method as well!

You could also check out your Christmas list with knitted cozies for starbucks cups, chapsticks, and ipods.  Or little sweaters for stuffies (or even stuffies!!)  That is quite a yummy stash...I'd find something to make with it, too!

You can make one funky scarf for yourself. That orange one is gorgeous.
