Here is a pattern I thought was cool for a yo-yo afghan. It seems a bit daunting for me because of all the ends that would have to be woven in. But, if you do a little at a time just to finish off leftover yarn eventually you would have enough to join. The joining on this pattern seems quick and easy.

u could also make granny daughters. That's basically just the first two rows of a granny square, and u make the blanket the same way you would a granny square blanket.

Or if the bits are too small to make anything with, i save all my scraps in a bag to use as pillow filling.

EDIT: Also you could make bows and flowers that you could hot glue to hair clips or attach to other projects.

I tie all of my scraps that are longer than about a foot together and wind them into a big ball. Then, when I'm looking for something easy I make granny squares out of them. When I finish a blanket it is going to Wrap with love.

For the shorties I use them as stuffing.

Make a basket for stashing!
Use the baby and the acrylic (I would start with the acrylic).
