Remember the afghan I was trying to resurrect with this Lion Brand Homespun yarn? Well, it wasn't working so I tried my favorite blanket pattern (again in crochet) and the problem with this yarn (besides being the yarn from hell) is that I can't count my crochet stitches which means you can't follow any pattern in crochet. Someone mentioned they had no trouble knitting with it so I found a knitting pattern on Lion Brand specifically using Homespun. The other problem was I had no idea it is technically a "bulky" yarn....that might have been part of my problem. Anyway, I am off and knitting a "throw" and it is called a "wave" stitch which describes it perfectly as that's the effect you get after about 10-12 rows. It's 136 stitches cast on and it is all squeezed on my long needles but so far so good and the one nice thing is even if I make a mistake I'm not sure you could ever see it! LOL! I hope it will be big enough....it's hard to tell.
I've got it figured out if I do 3 rows a day I should be done by the end of November or beginning of December.
*Katrina....if you haven't read this you should...you will love it.....it's right up your alley!
