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.

Sewing machines…do I need a degree for those?

.. Because that’s exactly what it seems like to me I knew it wouldn’t be an easy task to learn how to sew but blimey people, this is hard work for a girl with severe PMS lol I almost ended up throwing the thing out of the window. Oh and it takes so much preparation. No such thing as quickly sewing something haha. Think I am going to check out youtube for some tutorials.

Do any of you know some other good websites for total beginners like moi? If so, please post x thank you
