Cow Snowball

For Christmas, I made several plain crocheted snowballs adding safety eyes and a little orange nose to make adorable snowmen.

It doesn’t take long for charging cords to become a tangled mess. I got tired of digging through a mountain of cords and unraveling them all to find the one I needed. In the past, I had used a piece of yarn to keep cords together but decided to upgrade that idea with something that…
