Yes, working the homespun on the size 7's is really a pain in the nether side. And it seems to be coming out about the thickness of my pinky, which to me looks way too bulky for the edging. Also, the homespun is never very smooth so it looks somewhat lumpy.
I just think the whole thing is far to big in diameter to look right on the coat/sweater.
I'm wondering if maybe I could just go over the edge with some type of crocheted stitch to make it look a bit more even.
I do know if I ever make this pattern again, I'm going to do things differently.
(but then I say that after almost every sweater I make.
More pondering to do I guess....
