Yesterday my 17-year old asked if I could crochet him a hacky sack.
Apparently he and his friends want to use it to relieve the "stress" of exam week.
He even went so far as to find an old sock, fill it with rice and sew it together himself.
He thought the first one on the left was too big and wasn't made properly since I didn't follow a pattern.
The one in the middle was made using this pattern and lasted a good hour and a half this morning before the boys got it stuck in a tree. When they pulled it down, the sock started leaking rice.
So tonight a third one was made, this time filled with brown lentils.
It seems his friends were quite impressed with my crochet skills. HA!
I asked if they wanted another color but apparently red and black works for them.
I just hope this third one lasts a bit longer.
Hope you are having a great day!
