OK. So, over the summer as an experiment, I bought myself a ball of pretty, pretty white alpaca and dyed it with kool-aid. Unfortunately, due to what I can only assume was a sudden case of brain damage, I decided it would be awesome to dye it orange. And now I can't do anything with it. Orange hats look ridiculous on me, (I had originally planned to make it a hat) and it's not enough to make a pair of mittens or socks.

So, I was thinking I might be able to make it into some kind of scarf/belt thing, and maybe make the whole project more interesting/make the yarn go further by using some kind of kicky lace pattern. Unfortunately, I have *no* idea where to start looking. Most of the lace patterns I've seen have been for big, big shawls that I wouldn't have enough yarn for. Does anybody know of a lacey pattern (preferably fairly open, the yarn is a tad on the fuzzy side) that I could use/adapt for this kind of project?

You could always do just a net stitch scarf... use big needles and it'll show off the halo of the fuzz, plus use less yarn.  Do a search for "Mimi Very Long" on google and there's a net stitch done in laceweight yarn... I'll be doing one of those after the holidays, as a brain-dead late night project.
