I recently finished a few knitting projects and as I thought about what I should cast on next, I realized I have so much yarn in my stash. Leftover yarn, skeins I bought with no project in mind, stray projects I abandoned--I have enough to fill up a couple of cubbies in my IKEA cabinet. Instead of buying new yarn for new projects, I thought I would challenge myself to at least make a dent in the stash I have now. I've been knitting quite a few hats this winter (for me and for gifts). Many one skein projects are for hats or baby gifts or dishcloths. I tried to find some that looked fun and interesting and didn't all fit under the traditional categories.
It will be nice to try a few of these quick projects. What's your go-to project to use up leftover yarn?

1. Beer Mitt By Toby Roxane Barna Yarn: Super Bulky, 90-150 yards
I was just looking at some flowers on my counter in a mason jar and thinking that the water looked kind of dingy and dirty. Enter mason jar covers. I love to have fresh flowers in my apartment, especially in the winter. These would add a nice touch!
