I made my magic ball of yarn.  I forgot to take a pic of the yarn ball but it looks pretty much like the scarf I knitted.  I basically had 7 small partial balls of yarn that I thought were pretty when I bought them when I 1st started knitting.  I used a few of them & the others were just novelty yarns that I had no idea what to do with. 

Here is a pic of the scarf.  I knit it horizontally with size 13 circulars.  I cast on 160 stitches & just knit every row.  I had the tails from the knots pretty long so I trimmed them just a bit when I was done.



Here is a close-up shot of the knitting:

A fundamentally amoral use of faux fur.

That looks fantastic!  It really looks like something from a high-end boutique.  Did you do slip stitches or does it just look like that from the various yarns?

I didn't slip any stitches.  I just knit it horizontally & knitted every row.

This is the shawl/wrap a made a few years ago as a first attempt at magic 8-ball knitting.  I made it for a Harry Potter Swap.

I have a bag of scraps that need to tied together......this KAL is inspiring me!
