What I find helpful is to sort them according to color and store them in zip-top bags. When I am looking for an easy, fun project, I sort through my odds and ends and pull out a selection of yarns that look good together and will work in terms of weight or texture. In the Scrap Bag Stole above, I used eight balls of leftover yarn in a variety of fibers—silk, cotton, wool, and alpaca—and textures. The pattern is all Old Shale with a simple 5stitch rib for the Border (K1, P1, K1, P1, K1). After experimenting, I decided on #8 needles.
Once you learn the basics of your craft—whether it is how to read music, how to use and mix paint, or how to construct a sentence, the real joy of the art is in taking the discipline and craft you have acquired and then letting your imagination run wild. That is the beginning of all creativity. Please do not be so concerned with perfection that you become fearful of being creative. Perfection comes with repetition but there is no substitute for experimentation. And with yarn there are very few times when something cannot be ripped out.
Each YO is compensated for by 2 stitches knit together. The RSK2tog on the left form a pretty ridge slanting to the center and the LSK2tog do the same on the right. The important thing to remember, in order to make the slants uniform and neat, is that when 2 stitches are knit together they need to be positioned on the needle so that the stitch which is knit first falls on top of the stitch which is knit second. In order to get the correct placement of stitches I find it easier to just slip the stitches that are in the wrong orientation off the left-hand needle (or the right-hand needle for lefties) with the tip of the opposite needle, turn them around and slide them back into place and knit them together.
