semi-sentimental value, I lumped it all together into a quick-to-make
tri-loom shawl. Ironically, I have been stopped by knitting groups who
wanted to look at it more closely, and petted by strangers (who asked
permission) in bookstores. Obviously, personal perception isn't always
So, keep that beginner's yarn - it'll be admired when you use it.
Lucinda, who had better not get sick for the next meeting!
