I've been trying to use up the yarn I bought when I was a new knitter and hadn't experienced yarn from a real yarn grave. Homespun is such a pain to work with once you realize most yarns don't worm or bunch up!
And my pile of flesh notes, cross-posted from my blog:Homespun Horrors brain protector pile of fleshSupplies:
Lion Brand Homespun Yarn
US 10 circular needle
US 10 dpns
CO 60 sts. Join in the round without twisting and place marker.
Knit approximately 6.5 inches
(change to dpns as needed)
1) *k8, k2tog. repeat to marker.
2) *k7, k2tog. repeat to marker.
3) *k6, k2tog. repeat to marker.
continue in this manner until only 4 sts remain. weave in ends.
Super easy and less than two hours for an adult sized brain protector!
