On Friday the 5th of November I went to see the annual Crafts Fair called KIC. The exhibition has a hanging committee and the arts and crafts are exquisite.
One of the exhibitors displayed several Pilates balls - in suits. She had called her exhibition "Pilates Ball Goes Livingroom". Unfortunately I did not bring my camera and can´t show them, but they were all gorgeous.
Many of my friends have a fitness ball in their home, however those big rubber balls aren´t exactly pretty. And they are cold to sit on. The idea of making them a cover and transform them into a chair is brilliant.
Here is a tip from an expert:
It sounds simple but all this testing and fitting made me feel I had worked two of these covers. I was aware that it is not that simple to make a ball. Two flat circles sewn together will not fit. However, it is done and I believe if I inflate the ball a bit more it will be OK. If I work another one, I will choose to work sideways using short rows. But I am looking forward to knitting and training at the same time.
