Sock Yarn Scrap Stashdown

I'm not one for resolutions. They always seem like a setup for failure. But this year I would like to focus on reducing my sock yarn stash. There was a time that I would knit at least one pair of socks every month. I always had a pair on the needles. But I hardly ever knit socks anymore--though I should, my sock drawer is nearly empty. One area of the my sock stash that is completely out of control are my scraps. I just did a quick sweep and gathered up nearly three pounds of fingering-weight leftovers. Some are tiny little bits of only a few grams and some are a good chunk of a 100 gram skein. I grabbed a ball last night and cast on for BonBons. I've had this pattern in my queue since 2009. I'm using some Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors II that I bought at the second Sock Summit.


I've also been compiling a group of favorites to give me some stashbusting ideas for fingering-weight yarn.

What do you do with your sock yarn scraps?
