One Ounce

Before I obtained a Spinning Wheel, I was messing about with Spindles.
At the thrift store, I found several bags of fiber, so I bought them to use while
 learning how to spin.
One bag was full of this grey looking roving that turned out to have lots of subtle color.
When I want to experiment, or when I am trying to learn and practise,
I usually use this wool.
Yesterday, I carded a small batt using this wool and a number of other things.
 I then spun it on the wheel into what I guess you would call a thick and thin.
There is only an ounce.
That got me thinking.
What can you do with an ounce of yarn?
No, combining it with other yarns is nice but obvious.
I want to make it a real challenge.
so no small animals etc.
What do you think?
What would you make?

I am thinking and thinking. Maybe an eyeglass case?
Pretty yarn, anyhow!

macrame or crochet necklace and/or bracelet? Hair decoration?
used like a 'couching' thread as a trim for another knitted or quilted piece?
