what to do with leftover yarn

What do you make with your leftover yarn? Do you have a particular project you like to use it for? Do tell, I'd love to know.

About a year ago I made this crochet circle which admittedly I only recently finished. When I started I wasn't sure where I was going with it I just knew I wanted to use up some odd bits of yarn and practice crocheting. In the end I stitched knit fabric from a similarly coloured vintage sweater to the reverse and make a really fun cushion.

With odd leftover yarn still remaining in my stash I began thinking what should I make next? After some digging I've uncovered the following five resources to get you (and me) inspired for future leftover yarn projects.

I recently decided to open my two boxes full of scraps and leftovers and I started this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-favourite-things-infinity-scarf
I don't know when it will be finished but so far I'm having fun!
