Sock yarn would be really good for gloves, headbands, and lots of other things and if working with thin yarn doesn't scare you, you can use it for just about anything. Finding a pattern for just about anything could be hard but I'm sure there should be hat and glove patterns written for it. The more I knit with thinner yarns the more my worsted weight projects look like they'd be better in a thinner yarn. I have some swatches I did with crochet thread. I've not come up with what I want to knit from crochet thread yet, but I will. Oh, now that I think about it, maybe a headband would be good. Thanks, Claire. It's funny how things come together when I'm responding to a post here.
right back at you
