Any good patterns for scarves, blankets, etc, as well as any general tips would be much appreciated.

Bring to the local grammar school art dept for arts and crafts..nothing like a hand-crocheted pot holder if you are 7 yrs old..

your could crochet small squares for a quilt. Also baby booties and baby sweaters.

You could make small purses and pouches. Also you could just make a bunch of scarves or hats and donate them.

make a scrap scarf. pick 2 or three colors that contrast nicely and if you have any novelty yarns work them in between the other colors. i like garter stitch, it's quick and easy. i have a scrap scarf and every time i wear it get tons of compliments.

if you're a crocheter - keep small amounts of yarn for "granny squares" Some of my favorite afghans from my grandma were made with "scrap" yarn.

Yup, looked like "yam" to me too. I'm sorta disappointed I won't find out some funky use for old yams.
