Thread Knitting

I've recently begun knitting with embroidery thread- this particular purple number is actually a dyed linen DMC thread, which is much less shiny and synthetic looking (although the photograph is deceiving!) Here I was using 4mm needles to create a sort of mesh, and this is actually as far as one strand of thread will go, so it's going to be an expensive excercise!
I may possibly use this little idea to create earrings- as wool is much too heavy for them (I found this out the hard way!) or to fill up the seafood neckpiece.
