from red (and green) i made mini apple's (bookmarks)

other scraps go to make contrasting heals (and toes) sometimes solid sometimes fair isle (double thich) heals and toes.

Mini socks (seperate the sock yarn, to make it lace weight, and make socks on size 00 or 000 needles.

Mini sweaters (christmas ornaments) are another idea. (or make oviod spheres, (easter eggs))

some of these idea's can bee seen in knitting album of photogallery
