Like this mess of leftover spaghetti.
However, I've recently made use of my mess of scrap yarn, by crocheting a bunch of small squishy balls.
I basically used the same sphere pattern as I did for these meatballs, minus the eyes of course. Some of the balls had more or less rows than others, depending on the amount of yarn I had left. My color combos are all random since I was trying to use up scrap yarn.
Not really the most exciting project, but I know that when the Peanut is old enough to start throwing things, these aren't going to knock over a lamp or break anything else.
And of course, if you're using up your scrap yarn, these won't break the bank, either.
