What can I make with self-striping sock yarn, aside from socks?  I saw a toddler cardi at Knitty.com (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTdevan.html) but am looking for smaller - preferably unusual - projects.

Not sure if this is what you have in mind.....but I made a couple condom cozies for my friends.  It was featured in the most recent addition of knitty.  I just kinda winged it b/c I didn't have the pattern printed out, but they turned out really cute and stripey (and discrete.)  You could use the same idea but use it for a change purse.....or something else you would put in a small pouch.  I'll try to take a picture of my cozies tonight and post them.

fingerless gloves (or mittens) are great for self striping sock yarn.

I've been making a thong out of Lion Magic Stripes. I'm not using a pattern, just following the de/increases on a pair I already have.

A water bottle cozy for any prego friends you may have. Keeps it from sweating in their purse
A tampon holder for your purse, or a pad pouch, maybe a condom keeper
A hat
A pair of Gloves/Mittens
A hat like the kitty one for a wee kiddie with different clip on animal ears (that would rock, one day a kitty, the next a bear)
A scarf, all extra long and Dr Who-ish
A movie condiment bag- big enough to sneak in outside food and drink ... then when its empty you can stash it in your pocket
