...'cause I just can't get enough!
Hey Stephieface, I am SOOOO doing that with my Hugo (see her comment). I am about half way through winding up all my yarn stash and I will definitely be going back through it to re-wind some of the balls. I notice they are starting to un-ball themselves. Guess that's what happens when you first start playing with balls. You just got to learn the right techniques.
I am having so much fun with this (both the winding and using the word balls whenever I can) it should be illegal.
Last night, I convinced my friend Antonella to play with balls too. I told her she would have a ball (ha ha). So, while the guys were watching the Cowboys/Seahawks game, we hauled out Hugo. And while the Cowboys demonstrated how NOT to play with balls (so sorry they lost Gary, it was a heartbreaker), Antonella and I wound up a small bit of the 2600 yards of soft, green, boucle. We wound up about 8 balls of it and then couldn't take any more. Playing with balls can be very tiring, especially if you are the human swift. You're a trooper A! I'm gonna make you something special now as a thanks. Sometimes you just gotta have some help when the balls get too big. Now she has the skills to go off and play with balls on her own.
Sorry, but I don't have any pictures of us playing with balls. We were concentrating too much on our technique and trying not to get all tangled up. The guys were too busy watching the guys on TV play with balls to bother with us. Antonella and I were giggling and laughing the whole time. Here we were playing with balls, the guys were watching other guys play with balls, and every other word out of the game announcers' mouth was ball. "He grabs the ball...OHHH he drops the ball...moving the ball down the field...throwing the ball." It was a ball I tell you.
OK, I've got to stop. I can't take it anymore.
(And Stephieface? That's 22 times I used the word ball this time. Make that 23.)
