Oh, those are some good uses for sock yarn! Do you have any pictures of your finished projects (or did I just miss seeing them or maybe I missed the fact that they're knit in sock yarn when I did see them)?

GG: Perhaps it's a coincidence that both my shawl and the stole are in green (leaves, ya know), but what drew me to the shawl was the dropped stitches around the leaves. I think I would like that in any color!

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
