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.
You might also check this resource next time you're wondering what your yardage will get you:

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.
