My roommates in college were incredibly attached to a particular video game. They played it obsessively and often a good time on Saturday night meant having a few drinks and playing Dr. Robotnic’s, or as my friends liked to call it: balls.
Today I finished my torts my final. It is an absolutely wonderful feeling, even though I have no idea what sort of grade I’ll get. But to celebrate I made balls.
A different sort of balls than my friends, but way more to my liking since I was never any good at video games, except for Mario 3. But aren’t the balls pretty? On the left is Ultra Alpaca and on the right is Knitpicks Shimmer in Happy Dance. It took me three episodes of Grey’s Anatomy to do them both. Most of the time though was devoted to the Shimmer, since hand winding 440 yards of lace weight yarn apparently takes a while.
