here are few things i finally got motivated to do and upload after all this time.
first up: A ball which originally was going to be a small hacky sack for someone named Hacky, then moved onto a cube, then when i actually stuffed it i put in a bit too much so it became a ball. it now resides in my computer graphics room for all to enjoy.

H.A.C.K.Y.+Pocket=Hacky Sack! For the pattern i basically casted on a few then tried to knit in a square and used sorta like fair isle even though i should have used intarsia so i kinda did both, just carried the yarn of both colors through the back each time.

Second: Mohawk hat, nothing new just made it, Mohawks are awesome!

I used the pattern from Domiknitrix and changed a few things so its easier at the end and its modeled by the hackey sack.

Finally Third:

a reversible knitted hand bag, it started to become a tote bag to replace the one i had for quite awhile, but i got lazy and just finished a few ends and sewn the handle with the same plastic yarn. I spun the plastic strips on my small spindolyn so it took longer spinning then knitting it. I just cut it to strips and then tied the ends. I think i used about 20 or so bags maybe a bit less, it was a bit of a hassle carrying around the strips kinda like huge plastic pompoms. As i knitted it up, i just placed the knots and "fringe" at the purl side.
Hope you enjoyed my work and hoped i didn't waste all your internet time lol.

Very clever "hacky sack!"  I also like the mohawk hat.  If I were a boy, I'd have a mohawk.  Maybe I should make myself a mohawk hat.  Good job on yours.
