    Did you just knot the underneath?

    If so, how lumpy is it to walk on?

    the knot sits inside the hole, so you don't feel it when you walk.

    Nice! You may want to take a lighter or match and fuse the loose ends ... hell, fuse the whole freakin' knotball.

    That will strengthen its structural integrity and prevent it from ever loosening.
