So I scored big time today.  I recieved two big grocery bags full of yarn from someone who posted on freecycle, yay!  But in the bag there are several balls of boucle & chenille wound together.  I'm very new to crochet and I have no idea what kind of projects this is good for?  Anybody have an idea?  Thanks!

I tend to think of the really funky novelty yarns as being best for things like scarves and shawls or bags.  My personal taste runs away screaming from sweaters made of novelty yarns, and although I might (and have) worn soft, pretty sweaters made of light chenille, and sweaters also made from some types of boucle, in general I probably wouldn't wear one made from both.  But that's just me.

You're right, it's definatly not something I'd want a sweater made out of!  I'm just having a hard time imagining this made into something haha.  I'll just have to play with it, crochet up a swatch and see what it looks like then maybe I'll get some ideas.  Smiley
