Magic Ball 1st Present Revealed





I wanted to knit until the first gift dropped from the magic ball it took knitting 43 rows to get it to drop off .The gift sterling silver swarovski crystal earrings Lizet got them for me from pink lemonade her jewlery is so very lovely you should check her out:)I hope you enjoy going on this journey with me alot of people dont know what a magic ball is.You wrap yarn usually 100g around gifts small ones usually like a tape measure, jewlery, stitch markers, tea, little chocolates until you have a huge ball of lumpy yarn then you give it to the receipient they knit directly from the ball as they knit their project the gifts fall out:)so by the time you have a project you also have all these gifts it is like christmas;)here are pictures of the gift and the shawl Iam making:)

I suppose I did hide the presents very well ;-). The shawl is going to be gorgeous!
I still have to knit that leftover of your ball, it might be a doll's hat. I feel there is still something hidden in the ball, want to know what it is, LOL!
