I’ll admit that until today, I had never wondered what an exploding ball of yarn looks like. But then I happened upon this image and animated GIF in Alan Sailor‘s Flickr stream, and… now I know!

Alan writes, “In this case (as in many others) I walk around stores looking for cheap stuff to blow up. Extra point if it looks easy to clean up.”

    (Although it seems somewhat sacrilegious to destroy yarn?)

      I don’t know how Alan does it. Ask him in a Flickr comment!
