these were posted recently at supereggplant.com, maybe for when you don't feel like knitting "couture" and just want to do the tea cosy with irony sort of thing -

calls for cotton but some say acrylic is better for getting the grime off.
hmm...i'll probably make one soon, the scrubby at the sink is looking ratty...

hats take less yarn than scarves do. you can make a hat with earflaps with about 75g of worsted weight yarn. using 2 or three colors, that only requires small amounts of each. that's what i use most of my thrifted stash on!

or, thongs for all your friends?

I looked at a neat book the other day, I think it was called 'Simple Knits with a Twist'.  There were some cute ideas for home projects that use scraps.  My favorite was the rug made out of crisscrossed strips of different colored and textured yarns.  I am going to attack my stash to make one!

magknits.com has a pattern for a coffee cup sleeve - you know like the cardboard ones they give you at starbucks?  I think I'm going to whip up a zillion of them for xmas presents this year with all my yarn ends.

Oooh, found something else, on this page there's a free pattern for a mitered square rug.  In the pattern, each square is stripey, so you could use teeny bits of yarn.

I absolutely LOVE these! They're on my lists of things to knit, right after a hat and a purse. Smiley

I made a beautiful scarf out of all my little scraps and it came out awesome! It's bigger and smaller in some places but pretty none the less... I will post a picture someday Smiley
