Me likes the novelty yarns!
Like a novice wine drinker who starts out liking sweeter wines, or the novice gardener who is attracted to all the multi-colored but short-lived annuals, this novice knitter gravitates to the novelty yarns. I bought this On Line Linie 73 Spot (color 05 - turquoise) during my very first foray into a yarn (candy) store, a lovely shop called "Lettuce Knit". I bought two balls of this yarn but was able to knit a twelve-stitch-wide, four-foot long skinny scarf using just one ball of it on size 10 bamboo needles.
