Jingle Balls, Part 2 "Get Whit It!"

The other night, I found I could resist no more and unwound the big ball. It took me about 40 minutes to get through it all but I had so much fun!

Cary re-enacts the opening scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark:

I considered taking a break from unwinding but HOLD THE PHONE I found some Bit 'O Honey (YUM) and suddenly found the strength to carry on.

In fact that ball was full of candy. The mints come in especially handy for barfy situations.

And there were cute kitty stitch markers inside!

And, at the core, a lovely ball of Elsbeth Lavold Silky Flamme in a gorgeous burgundy color!

Unwound, the hairy ball became TWO hairy balls (snicker)
And the cats went nuts over these cat nip stuffed felted cubes!

And that ginormous ball? It's a ball of Cacasde Eco wool--478 yards!! I could start a Hemlock ring, or make about 2.5 pr of Fuzzy Feet or a dozen headbands....

It also came with some words of wisdom from my Secret Pal (and the fine proofreaders at Cascade):

Can you guess who my Secret Pal is?

How about if you received a package that looks like it came from Archie McPhee's?

Well if you randomly meander over to this website, you'll know who!

Thank you Barfy Balls!
Your cojones made me so happy this week.

What fun! But... you mean you didn't just knit patiently and see what fell out? You just unwound the balls? Bad girl.

Heck, it's what I would have done too.
