Aren't they just gorgeous and colourful. Each ball is 10g each - just perfect for knitting up mini sweaters to add to the ones I've made previously.
With the leftovers I crocheted some mini squares. I also raided my other sock yarn scraps and made them into squares.

but you get the idea.
I now have a total of 50 squares which I will add to as and when I have some leftovers. Eventually I will sew them all together to make a colourful blanket. It'll be a nice reminder of all the socks I've made over the coming years. No rush for this though - it's definitely a long term project.
Now that I have enough mini sweaters, they are pegged up as bunting, and looking very jolly.
As with the squares, I will continue to make them, as they are a fun and quick project that is a useful way to use up and show off the leftover yarn.
I've written up the pattern for the mini sweaters and I'll publish it very shortly, once I've checked and finalised it.
I'm planning a weekend of Fair Isle knitting to try and get as much done as possible. I hope you all have a good weekend and are able to find time to do something fun and relaxing.
