i am currently doing a bedside rug with my magics, but that's because i have various yarn types and weights included. i would imagine that if you have similar yarn type/weight, then you could do anything you wanted with it and it would be fine. in another thread, a woman suggested knitting your magic with a strand of fur/eyelash yarn for continuity, sparkle, and depth. it's up to you, really! debra

My understanding of 'Magic Ball' is that the knots are simple overhand knots with tails left on - about half-an-inch long.

My understanding of 'Magic Knot' ... is easier to explain by an illustration than in words: http://www.rubysbeadwork.com/SlidingKnots.html

I've never heard of using the Magic Knot in the making of a Magic Ball, but I don't see any reason not to do so, unless you want to have the tails popping up there and there. I think my cats might like them, but my Magic Ball is still growing. I'm aiming to make myself an Inch-Worm Vest ... someday. (In the 90's, it was offered as a free pattern under that name; now, it's two bucks! http://frugalhaus.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=1367 Good thing I saved it back then!)

My daughter bought a ball of combinations of all types of yarns and ribbons. I used it to make her a Christmas Tree skirt for a small table tree. As it contained some very sparkly ribbons, it made a beautiful skirt.
