Check it out: I have something to say about knitting! I am working on a blanket/belated Christmas gift for Grammies. Originally I wanted to do another feather and fan afghan, but the thought of pulling out that tired trick a third time made me procrastinate, so I cast on a bunch of stitches and embarked on a devil-may-care stockinette pattern with a garter border and random ridges. It's made of Homespun in the color Regency (ooh, sounds fancy...NOT) which is a lovely combo of teal, gray, tan, and blue. I must admit, for afghans, this yarn is a-okay with me. It's soft, it gets really fuzzy (which is not a drawback for a blanket, I think) and I can wash it in the machine.
I want to make it clear that I don't think it's good for any other purpose, however. A homespun sweater, for example, would be a hideous waste of time.
