I was bored the other night & have been trying hard to fill my time with productive tasks. I have always loved the fabric versions of these grab balls & I'm pretty happy with how it turned out by crochet.<br><br><a href="http://tanialeclerc.wordpress.com/" target="_blank">http://tanialeclerc.wordpress.com/</a>

Thanks - it was actually pretty easy.<br><br><a href="http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/lffunt/babyball.htm" target="_blank">http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/lffunt/babyball.htm</a><br><br>
The assembly directions I found a little confusing but I think if I had not stuffed the pieces so full it would have been easier.

I'm a very beginner crocheter, I'll have to take a look at the pattern and see if I think i can handle it cause it's very cute!

It's not very hard, just a little fiddly 'cause the pieces are kind of small.

Thanks! I'm excited - we finally got paid (it was delayed & yadda, yadda, yadda...) today & I went to the store & bought some yarn. I'm gonna try that fancy pointed ball posted by Kayaking Mama & I'm also going to make a baby blanket with the alphabet on it - I bought some really bright yellow yarn for that!
