More Juggling Balls!

Went to a music festival over the long weekend, made these while I was sitting at the campsite :)

They are fluffy, really soft wool (Blissful by Moda Vera, from Spotlight), with a 5.00 mm hook. You might remember these (The Evolution of a Fluff Ball/Tribble I made a while back) - yes, using the same style of wool in a different shade - but I've since learned how to better crochet the fluffy wool directly, so these don't have an under-net like my older tribbles.

The insides are a really cheap tennis ball, so they even have a slight bounce! It was actually way easier than I thought it would be to crochet a firm net around a tennis ball, and close the circle around it. Just basic sc, and increase and decreases. :)

How fluffy are they?!!

I'm contemplating making a few variations and seeing if I can sell them, I think. :)
