Aw, dont be lonely. Its about 55 yards a skein, right?  Not  a huge amount, but enough for some nice accessories - felted or otherwise.  I haven't personally used it but am told it felts well.  So, if that's the route ya wanna go, maybe a little felted bag, or some assorted ipod/cell phone cozies.
You could also start with a panta, move on to fingerless gloves, and make little knit tubes for your beer bottles with anything that's left over.

Thank you!
 I was thinking about accessories like a hat and scarflet.

On the other hand, I have been told Katia Nordic doesn't felt well (maybe it depends on the colours because of the dyes involved). A friend of mine who designs patterns for Katia has tried felting it and got very bad results. So felting a swatch is in order, but will reduce even further the meagre yardage.

If you had 3 balls, you could knit the cowl from Teva Durham's Loop-d-Loop. But 2 balls? Except for a hat (like Chicknits' 2-hour hat) and scarflet (cf. Chicknits' buttonhole chic), I can't think of anything else.
