im so glad that they brought back such good childhood memories.... Grin

deff. try spinning poi, it is such a good physical and mental workout...you realy have to concentrate to figure out the fun spins....there is a realy great web page called home of poi, they have free tutorials on how to get started, and some fun moves....

and back to the thread, that rapunzel scarf is beautiful!

Those are pretty awesome morning_glory! But, if I may ask, what the heck are "Poi"?

hahaha....i guess i do need to explain a little better...poi are normally balls of fire you spin in patterns.....im sure you have seen fire dancers do it before....it is very pretty, and hypnotic....it is a hawaian dance i believe or that is where it started....they would dip strips of cloth on ropes into a fermented alcohol, and spin them....hence, spinning poi.
the ones i made are just for practice, so i can work up to the real thing....what i did to make them, was just...

cut sqaures of green clotht for the actuall balls....then started packing scrap fabric together till it was a nice ball shape, then took the polyester rope, and tyed it on the ball before i wrap it all in the green square....once it was wrapped i tyed it in with the rainbow wool yarn tight.....then on the other end of the rope i made a simple loop to put my fingers in.....then viola, practice poi....if any of that doesnt make sence, i can scan a picture of how i did it....

i love spinning these things....and when they whack me in the head (which they often do) it doesnt hurt.....

i am very attatched to the critters i make too....one lives in my car on the dash board....it watches out for traffic, and police officers....who needs a fuzz buster when you have a three eyed crocodile head in the car!

and i have a realy hard time sending the little critters to live with other people knowing the ruckus they make in my house....keeping us up at night, and eating the left overs and all...

i think your attatchment is normal. Grin
