So, what to do with all of those half skeins and balls of yarns left over from other projects?! Certainly, one approach is to collect up all the leftovers and donate them or take them to a swap meet. But, sometimes, it's just hard to let go of those special yarns, so another option is to group the yarns according to coordinating colors or textures and make a scarf, hat, amigurumi toys or other little projects that only need one or two balls of yarn. Or think big -- start making squares or other shapes to put together into an afghan or sweater. However you approach your stash, don't let it just sit there, get crocheting!
