I did squeeze one picture out of my progress on this shawl/cape. The effect with this yarn looks like Boulce.
Lion's Brand has it's own Boulce yarn but this is not labeled as such. However, the effect is somewhat similar. I'm making a rounded shawl by basically knitting each row, rounding it and adding a KFTB stitch on the first stitch of each row. It's really nice and soft. I have 2 skeins but I can't explain enough how densely packaged and wrapped this yarn is!
The colorway is Claret, a nice cranberry color.
The Valentine cross stitch pillowkeep, I stitched and it's a freebie from Primitive Betty's blog
I aged it with coffee grounds.
I've had some questions about specific things and please know I will catch up to answer individually soon. Looks like our snow storm is heading out. We got about 5-6 inches here. Yesterday we basically bunkered down here at the homestead taking precautions in case the electricity was lost.
Thankfully, we didn't lose electricity!
I'm definitely getting cabin fever now and I'm sure many of you are too. I see the storm is going up through the Northeast now. Stay safe and warm. I think today will be resting as I pulled something in my lower back this morning. I'm hoping this is very temporary because I have so many things to do.
But one things for sure, we won't be traveling anywhere today.
I also have some questions regarding recommended colors in DMC for the previous freebie sampler for Valentine's.
I designed this with over-dyed threads. There are conversion charts to DMC.

I hope this helps!
Stay warm and cozy,
