There are some fun things in the current Knitty issue.
Like these Larus & Ardea fingerless gloves knit in Cascade 220. Each glove takes 1 skein and about 12 yds of a contrasting colour. At $7 a skein what a great deal!
Then there are these hilarious Fish Hats that can be knit in any worsted weight like cascade 220, Manos del Uruguay wool or Mission Falls yarns.Gwenedd, in Berocco Ultra alpaca, is a stunning cable scarf that could be done in any worsted weight yarn.
Also check out Maja that is done in Manos del Uruguay Silk Merino.
Go on over and be inspired! Remember that all yarns can be substituted for a yarn of a similar weight!
