woolly ball

This is a wool ball.  I live in hope that Bitzi-DandyLion will rush up and down the living room chasing it: I think she's done so once, or twice.  It's a ball from the Farmers' Market: the woman who was selling them originally made these as dryer balls - to put in the dryer in order to get rid of static - and indeed, I have three of them just for that purpose.  But she said that people were also buying them as pet toys, so she started to make them with very simple decorations.  It has a very pleasing small amount of weight to it: one can throw it quite satisfactorily up and down the hallway.  I can't really find a justification for doing that, however ...
