Versatile and fun this yarn has been very forgiving of my mistakes. It comes in a zillion colors, which is nice, and works up well. I love the afghan I made, I wear it around my shoulders when I work all the time.

Lion Brand Homespun yarn is the yarn that the Prayer shawl group of our church uses most of the time. It is the softest, lightest yarn and has so many beautiful colors. It is always received with so much joy by people who are ill and in need of something warm but not heavy, and also can always be made in their favorite color. We are so pleased with this yarn.

This yarn does not wear well at all. It feels "synthetic" and is not very soft. It pills badly and does not hold up well in the wash. It's a good yarn to start out with, because it's cheap, but I wouldn't ever want to give anyone a gift made out of this stuff.

Last year, my daughter asked me to make her an afghan in black, gray and white to match her bedroom. Using a size Q crochet hook, I worked three strands of Homespun's Metropolis together at a time, chaining 88 on my foundation row and simply working single crochet back and forth. The effects were striking--something akin to a "marbled" look. I fringed it with Red Heart Black. It's one of her prized possessions!

I bought Homespun 305 Modern and 3 other colors my grandson picked out for the afghan he wanted me to make for him. I worked on other projects and didn't knit during the hot summer. Now, as I am trying to finish this, I find I am 3 skeins short of the above mentioned color. If anyone has any they don't need, I'd be grateful to hear from you, since the color has been discontinued. Thank you, Carol Samson Foisy E-mail: 33ford@verizon.net Phone: 978-374-4262
