and i would like to make some sort of shrug/ bolero cardigan thingy with it- any patterns or ideas out there, I knit up a swatch this morning with a pattern of clover lace [like on that wraparound cardi in SnBN] which utterly did not work- too chunky i,m thinking- but i still want a girly edge now my lace aspirations have failed... help please?

you might try swatching on larger needles.  that might add the lacey effect that you are looking for.
