Textured Cap
I'm working on a hat for a friend who asked me to make one to go with her corduroy coat. It's Homespun, which I hate, but does give it a really textured look.

Thanks folks. I'm not overly happy with it but am so far resisting the urge to frog it. I hate this yarn.

Why do you hate homespun yarn? I have not used it yet but have been thinking about it. Is it hard to work with? By the way I like the color that you chose.

It looks great!! I wish they could make homespun better or something cause the colors are so pretty... I find it to be splity and just not very enjoyable to knit with...but my mom makes prayer shawls all the time with it and never has any problems..

That looks very nice! It looks soft and warm. A great color and the bit of pink just makes it
If I were the receiver I would love it.
