Rug Yarn?

I've been knitting for about a year now. I'm getting ready to move into a house and want to knit some rugs. The apartment I'm moving out of has carpet, and the house has hardwood floors. I haven't been able to find any rugs that I like for my bedroom,so I thought I'd knit some.

I've looked at a few patterns, using various different types of yarn and have decided to create my own pattern. I have an idea of what I want -- a simple throw rug with a garter stitch border surrounding stockinette stitching. My problem is I'm having a hard time deciding what type of yarn to use. I tried using Yarn Bee's Frosting, but did not like the results. I'm considering either Lion Brand Homespun or something similar to Red Heart's Light and Lofty.

Anyone have any suggestions?
