Ball Buttons

I finally finished my ball buttons for Karen's class. For some reason, these took me forever. I had a hard time keeping them even and now, looking at them close-up in this photo, I can see all the mistakes! The large one (the knobby pumpkin) is about three quarters of an inch and the small one is about half an inch. I used a cotton crochet thread that constantly knotted and twisted. Why did I start the second one (the smaller) with the same thread? You would think I would have learned something from the first one.

I love these! Looks like an interesting technique. Like a basket or something.

The big one does look like one of our knobbly pumpkins! Still, you did learn something because even with the same thread the smaller one looks smoother :).
