Number 12,13 and 14 are the real stashbusters here. When you finish a project and there's a little bit of yarn left over, no may the colours, you can make a small granny square and keep collecting them until you can assemble them into an Afghan. Plus the pattern isn't that complicated to use.

I doubt that I will ever make one of those afghans, but there are a couple of them that I really like the pattern for. Maybe I could make a mini afghan and call it a wash cloth or a dish cloth just to be able to work the pattern and see how it looks before committing.
