Knitting: Magic magicball hitchiker

Firstly I would like to say that Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball is so delicious to knit with. It is squishy and interesting and really soft. I expected it to be a bit harder after knitting with Effektgarn. This is the Rainbow colourway.

I knitted the Hitchiker which is a wildfire knit on If knitted in wollemise you get 42 'teeth', hence the Hitchiker name (if you haven't read Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the number 42 is the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything) however in zauberball I only got 35 'teeth'. Still as you can see it is certainly long enough.

This is a great knit, the pattern is easy to memorise, it's oh so squishy because it's just garter stitch and you can do it front of the TV.

Awesome Hitchiker!

I'm a real fan of the Zauberball, I've just finished some fantastic socks with it :-)
