A great non-boring knitting project: use the "Hitchhiker" scarf/shawl pattern, and make it with several left-over colorful sock yarns rather than only one colorway.
This pattern is finally available for only $5. You buy yarn in 2 colors, and then leftover sock yarn for the rest of it! Buying now!!!
Using self striping/ self patterning sock yarn. Two skeins- one in brights , one in pastel. How cool.

This is the perfect project to use up those many small odds and ends of sock yarn you have collected over the years. Or a perfect excuse for buying multiple mini-skeins of fingering weight yarn!
