Posted:the socks are nice though because they don't stretch quite as much...stretchy is fun, but it can make things a little difficult when first starting

Posted:I made my first ones with tennis balls aswell, but then my balls didnt like the tennis ones so much, normal socks rolled up within long socks is a lot more friendly.
