I don’t really know why this was news, but a few weeks ago I came across this fun article about a New Jersey knitting group that had a magic ball scarf making party.
I’ve told you before about making magic balls out of little bits of leftover stash, but this idea takes it to a whole new level because you’re also swapping yarn bits with other people.
The idea is that you get together with some friends or your yarn group and you each bring a few balls of yarn. Each person then cuts lengths of all the balls they like and makes a magic ball, then knits up a scarf.
This sounds like a really fun idea and a great way to use up some yarn you may not love on its own but would like better mixed in with other things (or just regular leftovers). I think it would be great fun for kids, too, because they’d enjoy gathering the yarn, making the ball and knitting it. Or what about doing this for a yarnbombing?
Have you ever done a group magic ball project before? I’d love to hear about it!
