Well it's actually colorwaves, but it's about the same weight as the more popular homespun.

Anyway, I've got four to six balls of it that I got for super cheap ($1.00 each!)  That I want to use up before I buy any more yarn.

I'd like to make a cardigan or jacket or something similarly wearable. The only crochet book in my library is the happy hooker, but none of those patterns particularly appeal to me. I don't like frou frou, but I might try prepster if nobody else can suggest something appealing from online.

So can anyone help? I've done quite a bit of crochet, but only recently joined the online hookers' community. Everybody on here has such neat projects, I'm sure you can suggest way better patterns than I could find on my own. After all, it took me this long to find craftster.

Have you gone to the lionbrand website?  They have a TON of crochet patterns and you can look for patterns based on what kind of yarn you want to use.  I may be making this up, but I'm pretty sure there was some kind of sweater jacket that uses homespun.  If you want to make something quick, there is also a throw on there called the waterfall that uses that yarn and a Q size hook--it works up really quick!

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

It would probably make pretty cuddly, soft pillows too. Smiley

If you scroll down, there's a bunch of patterns for Color Waves yarn.

I use 1 strand lionbrand homespun plus one strand caron simply soft together to make really soft and cuddly amigurumi dolls.  Use a K hook.
