Since you guys are some of the most innovative folks around, what would you do with one ball of this other than your standard one-ball skinny scarf? I picked one up on the cheap since it was an odd-ball and it's just sitting here daring me to do something with it. Any suggestions? It's only 55yds.

I think it would look really cool as trim for a purse.  You could knit the purse out of a solid color yarn and when you get to the top change to that yarn.  You could also just knit it like a skinny scarf but instead sew it around the neck or sleeves of a long sleeve t-shirt or sweater.  Whatever you come up with I'm sure it will be really cool.

Or you could just do a simple single crochet border around a blanket or something to glam it up!  (I'm far from a crochet expert, but even I can do a single crochet border - some knitted sweater patterns even call for it, it's really easy to learn)

You could also make your own fringed trim out of it. Cut off one side of a wire coat hanger and shape it into a U. Wrap the yarn around it and stitch down the middle, with the bottom of the U closest to you. As you sew, pull the wire toward you and continue to wrap until you have used all the yarn. You can leave the fringe in loops or cut each loop.
