A charity shop purchase

A month or more ago I was out in Alcester looking round the charity shops as usual when I came across this yarn.

Now there's a lady who goes to Crafternoon called Irene (lovely lady) who knits lots and lots of baby blankets using this sort of yarn and it's always fascinated me!!!! So I bought from the charity shop. 

Irene always has HUGE balls of this yarn and I knew that I didn't want that sort of commitment so this looked 'just right' to me!!! Three balls of 50 grams each. Just right - but what for?

So, I actually remembered to take my yarn and some knitting needles to Crafternoon last Friday and dear Irene gave me a lesson on knitting with it. 

It's not easy to work with but I'll show you progress next week - IF I've made any. Oh, we decided there was probably enough for a scarf but we'll see!!!!

It's squishy and effective once it's knitted, you just have to make sure that all the bobbles are on the right side.

Looks interesting, I look forward to seeing what you make with it.

It looks like it could be challenging. It will be fun to see the final result!

I have similar type of yarn, only difference is that the middle yarn part is not of that much length, the bubbles are close to each other. I don't know what to do with that, any one may please suggest me about that yarn. I liked it and I just purchased it in my last USA trip.

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
