Here is my Magic Ball Afghan. I like the unfinished look of the tied yarns.

I like the knots in there, too. Very cool! How big is it? It looks like you did the whole thing using 1 strand scrap, 1 strand black. Is that right?

exactly...I used an "N" hook and did the whole thing in double crochet. I haven't measured it but I would guess maybe 60x50 inches

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

That blanket looks awesome! I agree with you I like the texture that the tied pieces add to it.

Great looking scrap blanket. I like the way the black both ties together all the different colors as well as shows them off. I'm on the Knot and Ties are Cool side, too.

Very nice! You've got a good eye for color-blending.

I've made tote bags the same way, with the knots on the outside.
