Fighting the Yarn Mess

My accomplishment of the weekend was cleaning up the den where I knit socks. A big part of this was going through all the odds and ends of yarn.
Unless I make knee-length socks, each sock uses less than a 50-gram ball, so no matter what size I make, I have just a little yarn left from each ball. I spent some time sorting out all the interesting color schemes to try to make some composite socks from the leftovers. Then I made a pile of leftovers where there obviously isn’t enough to make socks, which I will use for baby socks, hats, hair scrunchies and the like.

I also filled a basket with things to sew up.
