I purchased a packet (it's sold in packs of 4 x 100gm balls)
of their magic light which is a self striping 8 ply (DK or double knit) yarn,
in the green, pink, blue, purple, yellow colour way #22034
It's available from knit4charity ice yarn
I must say I love it, It's the softest acrylic yarn I've come across.
It reminds me of an acrylic / nylon mix baby wool.
I've just finished my first project using this yarn, another round ripple,
the pattern I used is based on a pattern by Doris Yocum Turner
I used 2 balls of the magic light and then decided to add 5 bands in solid colours.
I made the decorative border based on border # 21 fromEdie Eckmans' book
"around the corner crochet borders' I just used dc (Aus/Uk) sc for US.
instead of the chains in between each motif.
It's a great book and she has 150 different borders to choose from.
I couldn't decide whether to do just one motif on the corner or 2 either side as well,
so I alternated them. Now looking at it, I think I like it better with the 3.
The centre is from the Simple 10 petal afghan square pattern by Joyce Lewis
It was an orphan left over from another project.
I'm so happy with it, it's so pretty and I managed to combine 2 of my favourite patterns.
I'm looking forward to ordering more of this yarn in the future.
I have already started a few projects with this yarn and I'm onto my last ball already.
I have a few more projects floating around in my head and I can't wait.
I'm having trouble choosing which yarn I want the most.
I could easily order up big, I have the space now, but no job to pay for it. Haha
Oh well I think I only have about 12 weeks until my birthday
PS There are Absolutely NO kickbacks, no yarn changing hands etc wish I did though.
Now to show you some pictures (sorry it's unblocked) & the colours are much nicer in real life.
