Zauberball Sock Yarn- I’m in love!

Standard

I have joined a group on Facebook called Nadelspiel. It’s a German group about knitting and crochet etc and there I have always seen people talk about a Zauberball. So I got nosey and decided to google it and see what all the hype is about and OMG I was in love.

A Zauberball is a ball of sock yarn in the most amazing colours. You can get them in all sorts of combinations and not just use them for socks. See below what I have come up with.

It’s not finished yet as I am waiting for more yarn to come in at my local shop but yes, it will be a gorgeous shawl once it’s finished. Thinking about working in some beads around the edges, just not sure on the colour. Advice always welcome 🙂

So if you are now just as curious as I got when I heard of the Zauberball then just have a little google for your nearest dealer.

One word of warning though, the yarn is pretty thin so it’s more something for patient knitters and crocheters, but the colour changes are so much fun that the time just flies past.

Sorry!! So, so busy!

First of all I’d like to apologise to everyone, I have been so wrapped up in craft projects and working out that I have been slacking big time on my blog (Don’t you find it funny how a spellchecker on a Blog highlights the word -blog- as an error, kinda tickles me. But hey, small things…etc.).

So what’s new? I have still not got to try Yoga, which I am so keen to do, but as my mat and my blocks have not arrived yet I have to carry on doing other stuff. One of those “other stuff” is my new rowing machine! which is working me nice and hard and it was a big of a bargain from Argos for only £149. I have been on it every night so far and my legs and shoulders, not to mention my abs, are absolutely killing me. This is a good thing though, so at least I know I have not been lazy.

Hopefully my yoga mat will get here tomorrow so I can finally start doing that in the mornings. Look out for some more crafty posts in the next few weeks, I have soooo much planned and hope that I will find the time to do it all. Right know I am crocheting a blanket for a friends baby, I am knitting a hat out of the most gorgeous yarn I have ever seen and I have also bought some sewing fabric on ebay (Gotta love ebay). So yes, stay tuned and see what I come up with next 🙂

Oh my god, how cute are those?!

Oh my, look what I have found on my online travels while I am supposed to be working! Super cute and the pattern is super cheap too. Just a shame that my knitting is not so neat so they will not turn out like this cute little thing at all.

If any of you are going to have a stab at making one, or have knitted, sewn or crocheted any other cute little teddies, dolls and the likes I would love to see them.
