Notes

Need a happy project to get me through the winter months so this will certainly fit the bill. I may add a second darker background colour half-way, but for now, I’m just letting the Crazy Zauberball do its thing and having fun watching the dots change colours.

At the half way point, just decided to switch yarns and use the zauberball as the background colour. Can’t decide which half I like more.

My grafting is not the best and especially in the round. Grafted using Kitchener stitch - had to fudge as halfway through, I ended up having more stitches on one needle so compensated with a few k2tog. So one can see the join, but once around the neck, no one will notice. I like the way this wraps around twice - very cozy and I love the colours.
