    I love making fingerless mittens and gloves from sock yarn. Most are machine washable, so that’s the first plus. They are a nice thickness, not too much fabric between the fingers. Being a similar circumference to a sock, the patterns of the sock yarns turn out the same as socks.
    Anna in Australia, love the videos, keep them coming.

    I’d have to say a tiny sock Christmas ornament. My eyes were not happy! :-)

    I made a crochet baby monkey (pattern called for worsted)out of leftover yarn from 2 knit sock monkey kits from KP. I made him a diaper too.

    Probably the craziest thing I’ve knit with sock yarn are tit bits for the Knitted Knockers Program for breast cancer survivors.

    My boyfriend asked for toe socks, and i heard toad socks… confusion ensued, and then he demanded toe toad socks. So it’s not actually done yet, but a current project is toe socks with tiny intarsia toads on the heel flaps!

    Also rugs for a dollhouse….

    The craziest thing I ever knitted with sock yarn was a mitten for a man who had severed three fingers in a circular saw accident. The mitten was to keep this hand warm when he didn’t couldn’t wear a glove because of swelling. The mitten was the size of a table tennis paddle.
