We were able to get 33 spheres done in about 3 hours; much more efficient than last time. This makes my total count to just over 40. Mama Honey was a genius and brought some drying racks along that made for hanging the drying spheres way easier.

I have no earthly idea why only the peach yarn didn't hold, because the others turned out great, and we used the same mix for all the other colors of yarn. I saved the loose spheres, just like I did the sad ones, just in case I decide to go art deco in the venue. I This batch also isn't nearly as sturdy as the previous, I think because of the lack of cornstarch. Who knew that a .99 box of cornstarch was so important! Oh well you can't win them all.
My main reason for writing this follow up post is to tell you to use cornstarch if you are going to use a similar tutorial to craft some yarn spheres! Take it from this Bee, the messiness of the cornstarch is worth it in the end. We are going to do one more batch, just to get a few more peach and gray, but you won't see anymore of my obsession with the yarn spheres until the big day...maybe.
