Yummy! Crazy Zauberball

in Yarn

I was visiting a local yarn shop and ran across the most fascinating yarn.  It was sitting there in a big bowl of yarn and each ball had it’s own amazing colorways wound in crazy patterns.

I stopped dead in my tracks….I just stood there staring and wondering how in the world could 1 ball of yarn have so many interesting color changes.  I mean seriously, look at this!

So I decided right there I had to have one.  I mean I HAD to have it.  My “gator” eyes gravitated to the orange/blue combo.  After squeezing it and wiping the drool off my face, I bought it.  Squee!

This magic is called a Crazy Zauberball.  I believe it comes in different weights, but the ball I grabbed was sock weight.  I raced home and opened Ravelry and started looking for patterns that would show off the beautiful colors.  I didn’t want to do socks….I still have my bad case of one-sock-itis…..I can get the first sock complete and can’t make myself cast-on the 2nd sock.  So I decided to try for a wrap of some sort.  I found a pattern called Wingspan, and it’s FREE.  Oh my, I couldn’t wait.

It was a relatively fast knit project and didn’t take long to memorize the short row pattern.  The best part was just watching how the colors changed row after row.  Mesmerizing.

I would highly recommend this great yarn.

Pattern is on Ravelry HERE.
