This past week I've been pretty busy with some of my larger projects. Because of this my project for the week is a pretty simple one. I made up a Pokeball hackysack!
I will admit that it would be much easier to crochet this then knit, but I've yet to properly pick up a crochet needle. So it took me a few attempts to make a good one.
I first did a double-knitting technique with all the colors but things got too messy inside. So I just switched out the colors each time. I left all the strings attached inside (because i'm not the biggest fan of sewing my knitting.) But it was still much too flat.
I stuffed it as much as i could and sewed it up. But it couldn't be saved.
As it turns out though, kitteh loved it. So I took out all the stuffing and put a bit of cat nip in there for him. :)
Then I made a second one. I changed the type of red yarn I was using because it was chunkier then the white yarn. This fixed an issue I had with the first pokeball as the two gauges were different. It turned out so much better. So I stuffed it with rice, sewed in the ends and voila...
Also. MUDKIPS. Enjoy.
