Hacky sack crochet
Spring has sprung in Bath, and things are going well. After getting over [more] colds, I am enjoying the flowers, freaking out over the size of bumblebees, and crocheting hacky sacks.

How much will the wool twist when I use the poi? Will they still look good? What sort of stitches should I use?

I am sure there will be answers for these questions in time.

Lastly, I wandered into the field and saw some rocks or something;
