i am starting poi. yesterday at my school fair, some kid was giving poi lessons. i have been yoyoing as long as he has been poi-ing (?). i tried and i learned a few tricks fast (yoyoing helped). some motions are really similar to looping. they even have a poi version of the tangler.
i cut open my finger by accident and i cant yoyo much for maybe a week or two. i decided i will look at poi tuts and see how i do. if i like it, i will stick with it and have 2 skill toys. if not, i will just continue yoyoing after i heal.
so i have 2 long socks and i stuffed them with normal socks. if anyone knows any other way to make good home made poi, then that would be greatly appreciated. i found a sight called playpoi.com and i will use that, and if anyone has a better sight, then that would also be appreciated.
EDIT: i am healing up faster than i thought. it may be less than a week. anyone know how to help heal a finger? i am putting vasalen (sp?) on it and then putting on a band-aid.
