In danger of hibernation

One of my current WIPs (Knitty's Wisp) is in major danger of hibernation. It's a lovely pattern - easy to follow, very pretty outcome - but it's just sort of boring. Further, I'm not sure I chose the right yarn. I don't mind so much the boring pattern, afterall, I do like mindless knitting for DVD-watching. But I'm thinking I made an uneducated yarn substitution. The Misti Alpaca laceweight I'm using doesn't have the same mohair halo as the original, and my edges are looking quite wonky. Perhaps blocking will help, but I'm not convinced it will look as nice as the original. :(
