Yesterday I decided to try Evelyn A. Clark's "Itty Bitty Bears" pattern from the summer 2005 issue of Interweave Knits. It took 1 1/2 - 2 hours to make, but was not very easy. There were many ends left to deal with and when you are working with something so small - I put the Hot Wheels car in the picture for perspective - taking care of ends is hard to do. It only used a few yards of yarn so it isn't the greatest for using up stash. Unless you plan on making many of them. But I just don't think that it is worth the time.
Anyhoo, I still haven't figured out what I will begin next. Too much stash, too many projects, too little decision making ability.
