Zauberball! I met the Zauberball at the local yarn store yesterday. It’s magic. Kind of like the Gelato ombre fabrics. And I like saying it: Zauberball! I went again today to visit the Zauberballs. I want to make a Zauberball scarf of some sort.


I like the slightly rustic nature of the winding too. Zauberball!

I have lost my mind.

But here’s something you might want to know about. I found this at Borders today:


Patchwork Folk Art by Janet Bolton is just out in paperback in the U.S. I believe this is a reprint of the 1995 hardcover of the same name. It is extremely charming and now easy to get! Visit Janet Bolton’s web site here.

    I love Janet Bolton’s stuff. First saw an article about her in Victoria magazine years ago. I got this book back in 2002 at our guild’s quilt show boutique. Paid $2 for it. At the time it was out of print, but I could have purchased it off eBay for $100!

    I’d love to see the yarn knitted up to see how the colous go. You wouldn’t believe it, I found a piece of fabric that is a replica of your ombre circle dots in my cupboard today. It made me think of you.

    I have that one in my stash – waiting for the perfect project. Have been considering that cool fish hat on Ravelry. Used the denim colorway for some socks a while back. Have fun!

    Loving your circles

  9. When I attended the quilt run in So. Cal last week, I saw a demo at Fabric Patch where the woman had hand dyed her yarn. Such beautiful colors! I don’t remember yarns being as beautiful as they are right now.

    What a fun word to say. Zauberball! Now I’m going to be saying that all night! Thanks. 😉

    Hi-I’m a knitter, spinner, felter, and I fell hard for the Zauberball too. My goal is to figure out how to make one at home! Here is a link to the scarf pattern that I saw made with the zauberball that made my head spin.

      I’d love to see the scarf pattern made with the zauberball. I did not see the link on your posting. Thanks. I bought 2 skeins impulsively and now can’t wait to knit it into something other than socks!
