So. much. yarn.
I have a huge yarn stash. It is wonderful to have so much at the ready for a project but there always seems to be a particular yarn which I’m needing/wanting so I buy more which leads to so. much. more. yarn.
The best thing about having so much yarn is that I can create the best skeins of all.
One-of-a-kind magic balls.
The exciting thing about these is that there will be so much color intertwined together and no one else will have the exact same skeins as I.
I recently took a bin full of yarn remnants, much of which had been remains of my Mother’s skeins, and put together some huge magic balls of yarn.
This isn’t even all of the skeins but it gives you an idea of some of the colors and sizes of yarn skeins which became my one-of-a-kind magic balls.
This is what I have created thus far. It is hard to determine from the photo but the skeins are rather large.
One thing I know for sure: they will become a warm, fuzzy and quite colorful blanket which will be like no other to be found, either by crochet or knitting. I haven’t determined which method or even the pattern. I’m entertaining some ideas of patterns to use, including the simple pattern for the knit blanket which I made last year which used quite a bit of yarn (although not as much yarn as I expected/wanted to use). I’m anxious to see what the finished project will look like. It will be an amazing array of colors including many of the yarns which were my Mother’s and there certainly won’t be another blanket like it.
Have you made magic balls? If so, what one-of-a-kind projects did you create with them?
I’m looking for various stash-busting knit and crochet patterns and have been looking through Ravelry.com for more ideas.
Stay tuned to see what my final project will look like…
