Ive been hitting up the thrift shops lately and its wonderful how much unique yarn I am finding, only problem is there isnt much of each kind I find, I am at a loss for what to do with smaller amounts of yarn that will do this cool yarn justice. any ideas for smaller stuff?

Enough for a scarf?  If not, then maybe a cell phone/ipod/pda cozy or a small purse?  

Or hey, if you have really little, a cool wristband?

Now, my story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" 'cause the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles

almost all of my stash is from the goodwill or other thrift stores!

That's because I was turned onto knitting by kaffe fasset's books. He uses a zillion different colors blending together, so small amounts work great!

some of his designs use intarsia. others have you  make a ball, using a few yards of one color then tying on a different shade.

Knitty has patterns for finger puppets, cat toys and bath puffs, all of which need a lot of little pieces of yarn...

If you have really, really little bits, how about one of these?

In last season's Interweave, there's a pattern for turning scraps into a throw/wrap.
