Dropped the (yarn) ball

I haven't knitted anything in ages, and that's too bad. I'd really like to get into it again, but I'm not sure what I could knit that I could wear here. Hats and scarves are out, as are gloves and mittens. I might have to break down and attempt socks. I'll also need to see what the options are for really lightweight, cheesecloth-y cotton yarn.
