Oh Balls!

February 2008

US 7 - 4.5 mm
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Many years ago I saw the movie Impromptu, about the affair between George Sand and Frederic Chopin. With a cast of well known actors, beautiful locations and costuming, and an interesting story, I am a bit embarrassed to say that what I remember most is that “Oh Balls!” was the stand-out line of the movie for me.

A sphere is such a versatile shape to have in one’s knitting repertoire. I use this ball pattern to make fruits, toys or something soft enough to throw at the television (oh like you haven’t wanted to throw something at the tv before).

Added July 8, 2008: This pattern is now available in German (translated by Kalinumba, with my permission).
