What are you interested in making?  You could do flowers - I posted a pic of the carnations I did in the other forum done with size 10 cotton.  Dimensional flowers for house decor, accenting clothes, to attach to hair, hats, pillows, whatever.  You could also use it for making clothing, like a lacy top, or a belt or something - but a larger project like that is going to be be more labour intensive.  There are tonnes of projects for things like thread crochet snowflakes too.  Suncatchers/dreamcatchers, gloves, small purses, shawls, fans, something sculptural, doilies, banners - thread crochet can be stiffened, so you can make something sculptural from it.  Filet crochet picture/banner/signs.  Lacy borders to towels, sheets, pillow cases, clothes.

Here are some projects/ideas:

With size 10 thread and a #5 hook you can make teeny little amigurumi.   Cheesy

Lucky you!

I like to browse around on this website for patterns:  http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory.php
The thread crochet is mixed in with the other crochet patterns. 

 I've been doing thread crochet using the patterns in a japanese book.
Check out this thread where I posted some if my potholders: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=102078.0

I can't post those patterns though because they are published in a book. 

I do like the idea of teeny amigurumi. 

Thread crochet snowflakes are completely awesome.  My grandma made tons of these and we each have a box of them that we use to finish decorating the Christmas tree. 

I use a 1.6 mm size 6 hook becasue I crochet very tightly.

Oh - I forgot to add - butterflies - I love crocheted thread butterflies - they are so pretty (you can tat them too if you learn or know how to tat):

Very pretty as applique on a cami, purse, whatever, or bookmarks, attached to a choker, hair pin, or in a pictoral arrangement with some crocheted flowers perhaps.

There are some pattern booklets for other Christmas things besides snowflakes. I have seen one with a crochet village...and another with a crochet train.

I love thread. I use it for evening bags, the occasional doily, trims for throw pillows, trims for sachets (made of muslin, which I embroider on, first). Crochet edgings can be extremely versatile--don't have to be used on towels and pillowcases (although some of that work is lovely).

I've also made sachets completely of crochet.

A few links:
