Multi magic is a big st made of many yarns held together. I use it as a yarn ‘Bank’ and pull this or that yarn out of it, while continuing to carry the rest right there in my ‘bank’. I also use it to avoid CO, BO and weaving-in tails and other knit clean up (it works well in crochet too).
The multi magic shawl, was fun and easy knit. It also makes it easy to use more of the yarn I have a lot of, and less of other yarns.

It was so much fun, I had to knit a hat to go with it:
Then I thought the hat is an Elfy hat (Elfy comes from a children book husband & I wrote, called ‘The mushroom under the Elf‘. The book has knitting patterns right in the middle of the story).
And then I saw a 3 needle BO that I just had to try and thought the easiest would be to do it in a slipper, and out came these Elfy moccasins! So my patterns for the next Elfy book are almost ready.
