So this is my new constant companion:
I had to resort to a Zauberball from Stash Zone C, one without a label—not the similar colorway Rare Earth I have coveted since we were picking Zauberball colors to offer. (The MDK Shop’s Zauberball inventory sold out over the weekend, when I started this. Happy to report that Zauberballs are back in stock.)
If anybody is wishing for a second BONUS technique to try this month, I highly recommend Very Pink Knits’s Simple Magic Loop tutorial. Can’t believe I’ve never used this technique. Very Pink Knits explains it better than I can. Bottom line: it means that all of a sudden, your inventory of circular needles now has greater potential than ever.
Sorry to be a bore, all you Magic Loop long-termers. Some of us are late to the party. WHAT A PARTY.
Much discussion of helical stripes, the philosophy of dividing a Zauberball into two smaller Zauberballettes, and so forth, over in The Lounge. Come join us, and bring your knitting.
