Have you heard of a Magic Ball? It’s a ball of yarn that changes colors and textures as you work. It’s something offered by a number of artisan yarn makers… but it’s also something you can make yourself with your leftover yarn!
If you’re like me and save even the smallest “fiddly bits” of sock/fingering yarn for future use, then you’ll like this project. You create your own ball of yarn by knotting those bits together - nothing like being thrifty and artistic. Check out Hipknitizer’s Yarn Nuggets on Etsy if you want to pump up your scrap stash.
