WTG Carie! The colors are great, and you and it look great too!
As for all that spare yarn, you might want to check around the web....I've seen a few places asking for spare yarn. Charity and good will project sites usually have requests for spare yarn donations - they aren't particular about what types either, from what I could tell. A Native American site comes to mind, as well as others. If I recall correctly, one (for profit?) site will even pay you a small amount for whatever you send them. Check around, it won't take you long to find online takers and worthy causes to donate to.
