Aren't those the best kind? Great job!

They look beautiful. How did you find the Homespun to work with? I have not used it but so many say it is terrible to knit with. It comes in so many beautiful colorways that I am often tempted.

Those are lovely...I am in the middle of one myself a different pattern but using the Homespun in Heather...I have had no trouble knitting with this yarn in fact I have quiet enjoyed it...Well done X

Thank you - the picture doesn't show the garter stripes that break it up a little. My 3rd one will be the standard k3p3 and I am going to do it longways in stripes with some random skeins of homespun.

Sue in Canada - I personally don't mind the homespun. The only time I have trouble with it is if I forget to count rows and have to frog a section - it kind of sticks to itself them.

Thanks. It looks so cosy for a scarf or shawl. I think I will give it a try.
