Don’t know if it’ll protect my fragile little egg, but I made a hot air balloon fly in my kitchen! And didn’t burn the place down! YEEEEEEEE-HA!
4:46pm: I just tore my balloon while trying to take a photo of it in flight. 😦 I’m going to try to patch it up. Spending another four hours making a new one is so unappealing to me. Grr.
8:04pm: The new balloon is made. Looks nicer than the first one, and I’m not testing this one out until tomorrow. I crocheted a cute little pouch for the egg. My hypothesis is that the balloon will either inflate with hot air like it did in my apartment today and then float leisurely down the four stories as it slowly deflates giving my egg a nice soft landing, or else the weight of the egg will cause it to drop uncontrollably to its demise, making the heat pretty much pointless. I’m hoping for the former. Guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
