Bonus: More fun with the 700g yarn ball

I mentioned in my last post that I wound my latest spinning project into one giant ball for plying.

The great yarnball

I have some extra photos of the massive ball that didn't fit in the last post. Because of course, if I'm going to have a 700g yarn ball, I'm going to have a photo shoot.

Winding the very, very large plying ball. Yes, this took ages, and yes, my hand was aching by the end.

Was it worth it? Probably not. But it was pretty funny having a basketball-sized ball of yarn.
