Go into Walmart or Superstore, head for the toques, mitts, scarves section (check both the female and male sections of the store) and look around. There should be a bin or shelf full of the things. They are "one-size-fits-all" small things that don't look like they'd fit anyone but a child, but they stretch and are just fine.
They breathe, they're cheap, and they provide enough protection to ride around the freezing mark just fine. I go through about 1 pair per year, but at $1, that's not bad at all.
They are also thin enough to fit under all my cycling gloves - even my tighter ones, but I wear them under one particular pair of cycling gloves, with a full terry back on them, which is just slightly looser on me (we've all got 2 or 3 pair of cycling gloves on the go, don't we?
