What are you most proud of? In progress photo shows the first section completed. Its hard to capture the 3-dimentionality of this at this stage since the stitches are being held in a straight line on the needle I was using, but that completed part is basically like the outer surface of a peeled orange section.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The Beaded Stress Ball pattern calls for fingering weight with size 8/0 (3 mm diameter beads), but I wanted to show that it sizes up nicely, too. Myabe for much larger hands -- or just to make something pretty? This one is done in a thicker yarn and larger beads. I chose going up just one needle size to retain a firm fabric where the stuffing would not show through easily. Finished size: 11 circumference (3.5 diameter)
