Cabled Patterns Felted Patterns Lace Patterns Men Pets Plus Size Acrylic Alpaca Cotton Silk I have knit entire sets of baby clothes sweater or jacket, hat, and shoes with a single skein. I would only use superwash or similarly easy to care for yarn for babies. These are heavy duty items that will get washed a lot. But you can go all out with the colors.
Babies love bright, saturated colors and strong contrasts their eyes can see those a lot better. And knitting baby clothes is fun. What else can you knit? The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination, really. But some of the more common items are book covers, toys, bags, cup cozies, and bookmarks. Some of these items use a lot less than one skein and can also be knit to use up scraps and mini skeins.
Do you have a special skein of fingering weight that you are saving for the right project? What have you knit with sock yarn before? Please let me know in the comments below.

Garment-y things. There is a young designer who has done wonderful sock-yarn shawls. Stephen West? They are fantastic patterns for collectors of single skeins of beautiful sock yarn: fun to knit and even more fun to wear.
That was a fun hour on Ravelry, and has me itching to cast on some stripes. Today was a good day to be walking around New York. Marathon runners are everywhere, groaning gently as they step off curbs, leaning wanly against buildings while slowly sipping hot beverages.
How do you know they are marathoners? Because, adorably, they wear their medals. This charming tradition brings out the best in New Yorkers, who are free with their congratulations.
