Life of its own

Don'tcha just love it when a project takes on a life of its own? When you don't even have to put in any effort, it just kinda happens. You find yourself sitting up late with it, even when you have things you really should be doing instead.
That's happened this week. I have lots of what's allegedly alpaca fibre. It's not soft and fluffy as you'd expect, but quite coarse and scratchy. I've been wondering what to do with it - you wouldn't want to wear it. So this project is ideal. I have some natural black (very dark brown) and natural white (very slightly creamy). Perfect for spinning and weaving into this not-very-original but very effective pattern:
Whether I have time or not this weekend, I know it's going to get sewn up. Any ideas what it might turn out to be?
