Oh - here's one! How about try doing a felted join. Cut a piece off 8-10 inches long and see if you can felt one end to the other end of the ball. Wet the 2 ends a bit, overlap them in your hands then rub your 2 plams back/forth together. If the yarn is wool (non-superwash) the 2 ends will felt together.
