I'm not doing it in stripes. I'm doing black and white magic ball knitting, which consists of cutting random lengths of black and white yarn and tying them together and knitting with this homemade ombre. Weird thing is, in stockinette stitch, all the knots end up on the purl side ~
I don't know how this works. Every time I come to a knot, I try to figure out WHY and HOW, but I still don't understand it. I just accept it as one of those strange and amazing things, like marzipan, or mynah birds. It's not a children's toy, so I don't really have to worry about any of the zillion knots coming undone. I'm using worsted on dk patterns, so my stuffed animals are coming out LARGE! Which is cool.
