pretty yarn! had to share =)
i just bought some Sensations Rainbow Boucle Yarn from joann's (only $5 a skein!) and it got like 800+ yrds....one in pinks and one in a sorta periwinkles. i think i am gonna use the pink to make my nieces legwarmers... too cute =)



i think double stranding would be best. yay!

VERY pretty yarn. I think that double-stranding would work out very nicely. It looks to be almost self-striping. Is it?

Cheers,

Landolphe

Yummy! I fell in love with the colours!
I'm currently trying to think about something to knit with my boucle yarn, too (it's a light-ish purple). I wanna make it into a scarf but it would just be kinda dull if I use stockinette only. But other kinds of stitches wouldn't show up well, so....

Legwarmers are great! I wonder if I'm gonna make mine into legwarmers instead? My mom doesn't like it when it's cold so maybe that would make mum happy . She already has some legwarmers though . But would you still tell me how yours turns out? Does Boucle legwarmers feel warm and comfortable on your feet? :thinking: Thanks a lot!

Once again, your boucle yarn is delicious

I bought 2 skeins of this stuff in brown thinking it would make a cool looking afghan. I think it would but it would prob have to be all garter stitch and I don't think I can face it. Any other ideas for this stuff besides scarves?

This yarn is real pretty and it does stripe in a beautiful subtle way. I used it to make this:

But I feel I really should warn you. This yarn does not keep its shape at all. It stretches out like no other yarn I have used, so whatever you make, I'd recommend something that will still look okay if it stretches some. A shawl is not bad, but I think legwarmers might not stay up for very long. Maybe if you did the ribbing in a different coordinating yarn?
