Rainbow Boucle with Shimmer?
I got two 610 yard skeins of Rainbow Boucle with Shimmer for my birthday from my grandmother, and I have no clue what to knit with it. I've never even seen the stuff before.

So, does anyone know any good Boucle projects? I do have 1.5 days on a bus coming up in July, so I'm open to knit anything at this point.

What about making some kind of wrap or shawl? Nothing fancy, but a nice simple stitch that'll show off the pretty texture of the yarn?
What color is the yarn?

Hmmm, I'd probably do something with stripes, maybe knit on the bias so that they are more diagonal, like how the clapotis is knit? I'm not sure how easy boucle would be to drop stitches though, you'd probably need to help that along quite a bit.
I also found this. It looks really interesting, and has some freeform design in it! You could probably make something like that work, with what you've got. It'd be really pretty.
