confusion between what we have and what we are...

I've got 4 skeins of dk weight wool/cotton, each a different color.  They look good together, so I'd love to make something with colorwork.  The problem is that 200g isn't enough for a sweater, but it's too much for a pair of gloves or something.  Any ideas for a medium-sized garment?

Child's sweater?  Or a really big scarf, nice and wide? (I know it's nearly summer Wink )
There's always the circular shrug thing (KAL: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=58497.0) that I think is just SUPER cute--gotta finish my other projects before I can start it!!!

a hat and scarf set.
You could try entrelac with the two different colours. a lady Elanor or something.
Or a shrug/bolero thing?

I know I'm not a knitter, but this pattern from Knitty


uses a small amount of yarn, looks ultra-quick, and could probably be adapted to just about any stitch pattern or color combination. 

Anyway, I hope so, as I wanted to crochet something like this for summer (our office air conditioning is positively arctic)

What's the ratio of wool/cotton?  A yarn that's like 80 cotton / 20 wool is still totally appropriate for summer (really, the little bit of wool actually HELPS to make a cooler garment) and you may have enough yarn for a tank or camisole.
