using homespun
I have used homesoun yarn many times. It is hard at first to use, but after a while you learn to not put too much tension on the working yarn. Makes great shawls and scarfs. Dont recommend doing a fringe on either. It kinda will come out when pulled on. Just thought you should know this so you can at least try to use your two balls

I loved Homespun when I 1st started knitting because it was so soft. I made my mil an afghan with it..she loves it! But, I don't really enjoy knitting with it anymore...I'm a smooth yarn kinda girl

I began knitting about two years ago and I did use some Homespun for easy scarves. :D What I liked about it at the time was that it did NOT show stitches so if there was a less than perfect stitch no one would know. I do think the colors are pretty and I liked the wave in the yarn. But I have moved on from it just as I once used fun fur for scarves and have moved on from that too. I still say if you like it, buy it and use it. :XX: :XX:
