I was at the yarn store the other day (imagine that!) and shuffling through the sale bin I found a few skiens of some different yarns that were all very cute and pretty and I couldn't help buying them because they were that sweet.

I've been racking my brains, and I was wondering if anyone knew any small projects that would do my pretty yarn justice.

Umm.. without any sort of description/photos, I don't think anyone can help you. "Cute" "pretty" and "sweet" don't really convey much in the way of what KIND of yarn it is.
Something to show off sock yarn would be very different from something to draw attention to a novelty yarn with bobbles.

Is the yarn all of the same weight, in complementary colors? If it is, you could combine them all for a purposeful magic/scrap ball effect to make a larger but not very large project like a tank top. If some of it is thinner (like eyelash), you can get a less exciting yarn to pair it with to make gauge. The Prism "Stuff" yarns are like this. I made a tank out of the "Cool Stuff" with a solid color rayon ribbon edging, and it is really neat. I get compliments every time I wear it. While in progress, I realized that I would run short on the yarn and decided to fill in from my stash, and it worked fine, which made me think that I could make up my own "stuff" yarn if I wanted to.
