Debbie Bliss alpaca silk

I hate to add to the "what to do with this yarn" group of entries, but I am just stuck! I have four balls of debbie bliss alpaca silk that I am at a pattern loss for. I purchased it specifically for a scarf, since it is uuber soft, thick and "nubby" feeling. However, nothing I've searched around for has piqued my intrest as yet. This includes back issues of IK, Vogue Knitting, Simply Knitting!, Scarf Style, Knitty, Mag Knits, Google and such. I've been practice swatching with it and don't like what I've done so far.

Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk
65m; US 7/8; 80% Alpaca 20% Silk
colorway 25015

This yarn makes great stockinette and cables, for what it's worth. I made an oxblood-red color cabled scarf of it already, and it's fantastic. This colorway is perfectly easter lilac-purple, which is suprisingly hard to photograph in natural and artificial light.

Mods, I don't know how to add the tag for this type of question, sorry, I'd tag it myself if I could.
