Do Your Balls Hang Low?

Ok, ok, so all the cool kids seem to have an Etsy shop.

Guess I'm just running behind the bus filled with those cool kids hoping to latch on. Remember when they taught us in school not to hooky-bob? Apparently they don't teach that anymore.

Monday I took five hours and made five Mirror Yarn Balls (I'm still trying to come up with a catchier name. Due to my shorter showers to save money on hot water, I'm not having much brainstorming time. All of my best ideas seem to come to me in the shower.)

Those are nekkid Turtle Daddy Sock Blockers in the background there.

Then I put them up for sale in my Etsy* store. But before I could make this official announcement that they were up, two were sold!

So I feel kind of lame with just three up to officially announce!

But it works out good, I wasn't planning to do much this weekend--looks like I'll be making more of these and hitting the post office!

*Dearest Sister T.--it's pronounced Eht-see, not Eeet-see. Love, Your Oldest Sister

Awesome! I'd be happy to donate some leftover yarn if you want. I never know what to do with it.

I think I better go to the PO tomorrow too.

Nice balls! (Hehehehe, that's so much fun to say.)

Congrats on your Etsy store, looks like you're already a success! Guess that means you're one of the cool kids now. I'm still riding the short bus.

How about calling them "No Dice"? Since they go where the fuzzy dice would go and they aren't...

Well, they're all gone now. Better get busy.

How cool! Sold out! Don't keep it that way for long. Good thing there's a weekend coming up. I see lots of ball winding in your future. I'll keep checking for a pink one!
"Sock" it to the IRS!

Congrats on your new store! How exciting! Bezzie the entrepreneur ;).

My daughter is ready to open her own eBay store to sell her handmade scarves and blankets. I think it's cute, and if it becomes a reality, certainly a good homeschooling project for her.

Okay - I love them!

Let me sing to you what was going through my head when I read your title:

Do your balls hang low
Do the wobble to and fro
Can you tie 'em in a knot
Can you tie 'em in a bow
Do they go flip-flop
Can you do it while you hop
Do your balls hang low...

I need to get away from this child and her toys! AHHHHHHH!
