I've done a few prayer shawls in homespun, and those I have liked. A sweater, I hated - it just didn't drape - at all. I like a lot of the colors too, so I guess that's the appeal for me. I have actually noticed some colors knit up easier than others - they feel looser, if that makes any sense at all
. In fact, I'm working on a log cabin for my daughter in homespun, and I'm using a bright green, a bright coral-pink, and a purple (her choice, not mine!!
) and the purple and coral are fine to work, the green is awful! I have also noticed it splits and frays, and if you want ANY kind of stitch definition, don't use it. I guess my basic thought is: blankets - yes, anything else - NO!
