Things to do with a sphere
Same basic pattern, three different results--Christmas ornament, juggling balls, pumpkins. I used Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport for the juggling balls, various sport wools for the ornaments, and the pumpkins were made with the same stitch count, but with different weight yarns--a lightweight worsted, a heavy worsted(Peacefleece) and a bulky. I stuffed the balls with a ball made of waste yarn. I makes a nice firm sphere and also the balls bounce good and have a little weight so you can really throw them and hit your target. The pumpkins were made squat by tacking the "poles" of the stuffing ball together.
