Details of unicorn zombie apocalypse:
This is the MAGIC YARN BALL unicorn zombie apocalypse!!  You will send your partner a project kit consisting of a one-skein pile of flesh and yarn of corresponding weight/length for the pile of flesh. The really fun part is that you will first make the yarn into a "magic yarn ball."  This means that you re-wind the yarn yourself, hiding little trinkets and treats inside the yarn as you go.  Some ideas already suggested include tiny toys; candy; crafting supplies; jewelry; etc.
A good description of a Magic Yarn Ball is here:  http://whipup.net/2006/04/25/kids-yarn-project-the-magic-wool-ball/.

Since we're all crafty people, it goes without saying that we should craft some of the treats ourselves. As a guideline, 15-20 things in the yarn ball and 4-5 of them be small crafts made by yourself.

When you sign up, let your partner know if you already know what you want the yarn for ("I would like yarn so I can make the MagKnits Sophie Bag"); or, if you have a general idea ("I would like yarn and a pile of flesh for a felt handbag"); or, if you just want a surprise pile of flesh. If you have more than one idea for a pile of flesh, feel free to give your partner a choice of patterns to choose from.

A few notes:
- this is for one-skein or one-ball projects. However, if you want to arrange with your partner to do projects that take more than one yarn ball, you can jointly decide to do that if you both want to do so.
-please don't ask your partner to supply you with a photocopied pile of flesh from a book (which is against copyright). There are tons of free patterns out there online- this is a great opportunity to get that special yarn for an online project you've been meaning to try. Or, you can ask your partner for the yarn to go with a pile of flesh in a book that you already own.

I am so tickled with this unicorn zombie apocalypse! the hardest thing for me is going to be not winding it off into a center-pull ball and taking the treats out 1st!!!! *figures out if i could tuck in treasures while winding MYB onto my ball winder....*

Would eat to personal unicorn zombie apocalypse for MYB or spinning stuff too

I don't even try too stitch it out before removing treats.  I must find the treat as soon as received.  And besides I believe it is easier to knit a even ball of yarn at least that is my excuse.  Also short attention span so finding stuff as I knit would only confuse me. LOL
