Blue-Blue Sock Poi

It's my friend's birthday soon. These are the first sock poi I won't get paid for. She asked me for plain cyan poi but didn't have money.
I didn't fancy making plain simple poi:-) I made the poi a bit shorter and cut a jagged piece that I joined with the rest by machine satin stitch (zigg-zagg stitch with very small length, usually 1 to F).

I added leather strips I'd been admiring in shop for their bright colour. I cut them in half and tied with a simple knot in the middle. Then I folded it in half and inserted into the hole, the knot went first. This is optional as it can be easily removed and put back.

The colour's really lovely.
