Those of your who know me well, know that my passion is yarn! Knit, crochet or machine knit -- it all works for me!

I did the demonstration on the knitting machine at our monthly meeting. I pulled this out of my box of tricks and immediately thought of Schoppels Zauberball Starke 6.

Zauberball Starke 6 is a DK weight yarn [Weight: 3 - Light]. It has long color runs, same as the classic Zauberball Fingering [Weight: 1 - Extra Fine].

I call this wrap Unusual Night, and it was knit on the Silver Reed LK150 knitting machine. I knit it very loosely, on a tension dial setting normally used for worsted weight yarn. I started it after dinner one night. Needed another hour the next morning to finish it up. I used ALL of one ball of Schoppels Zauberball Starke 6.
