sassyspoonicus :  Have you checked your local thrift shops? People donate leftovers all the time.

You can shop someones stash on ravelry. I had to do this when I needed just a little bit extra of a color way to finish a project.

I feel your pain.  This is why my yarn stash is huge….  I really enjoy making crocheting little toys and such, so I have tons of skeins in all different colors….

sassyspoonicus :  Toys are so fun to make!  I currently have 3 tubs of yarn, but I’m trying to use some up.  I just started a shawl that I’m making out of random stuff I have.  I want to get it back down to 2 tubs of yarn.  I had that before my Mother-In-Law died and I ended up with a lot of her stuff…

Try Knitpicks.  I believe they still have small put-ups for their yarn.

Aww, bummer.  They used to have quite a bit in 50g weights.

sassyspoonicus :  I love the buck!!! So awesome!  I’m also getting into the phase of my friends having babies.  That should help me dwindle down my yarn collection too.

Lion Brand has a range called Bonbons I use for my amigurumi where each pack has 8 10g skeins in different colors. You can also find min skiens on Etsy. If you search for amigurumi yarn online you will find a lot of sources for mini -skeins.
