I didn't own any size 10 circular needles, so I made it on straight needles, but that led to hand cramps. I could only knit for so long on this bulky yarn in big needles before my hands got tired. I think that it was because I somehow managed to cram 100 stitches on them. The pattern called for 120 something, but there was no way I was going to get any more on there. I love, love, LOVE the color of this yarn and the finished baby blanket. It is so nubbly and wonderful with the natural nubbyness of the yarn combined with the garter stitch, it's just divine. Did you see the 4 different blues in there, and the little gold flecks?! Isn't it beautiful?! Homespun is very soft and makes a beautiful baby blanket, but I must say it is much more annoying to knit with than to crochet with. Needles split it while crochet hooks do not. Oh well. Beautiful baby blanket complete! Now onto another UFO project... maybe...
