Since bamboo has a variety of properties that go well with scarves and winter, I'd suggest a nice snuggly scarf maybe?

That's only 186 yards of appx DK weight so you'll be limited in your choices. You could probably do a long narrow scarf. If you use larger needles make it lacy it would be really pretty.This one is pretty.

Just a simple garter or stockinette scarf on really big needles would turn out well I think. And if you throw in a few dropped yarn over rows,...
