What do you do with your remnants?

I don't like to throw out yarn. This means that, like most knitters, I have lots of small amounts piling up in my knitting stash. Every so often, I have the urge to use them up.
Some of my favourite things to make from remnants are children's clothes. These child's socks are made from Jigsaw Heirloom 66 and Patonyle sock yarn 1003 remnants from larger socks. The pattern is my own.
These socks fit youth size 1-3 (Australian) and will be worn out sliding down the hall. This is a much better use of the yarn than sitting in my knitting chest.
What are your favourite remnant projects?
