pom poms galore

I’ve been making pom poms, quite a few of them . . . so very addictive!

Over on Flickr someone asked, how do you tie them so tight?

Well, the Clover Pom Pom Makers make making pom poms so easy!

I have three different sizes. The two smaller ones I purchased from Purl when I was there earlier this year (I don’t think I got around to showing you my purchases, I’ll save that for another post) and the larger one I recently purchased from my local yarn store.

Basically you wrap, wrap, wrap . . .

then you cut, cut, cut . . .

then tie and remove the pom pom . . . easy!

So what’s with all the poms you might be thinking . . . my plans are to make a pom pom scarf using the large ginormous pom poms. I’m in no rush, I’ve set a target to make one large one per day.

With the other pom poms I’ve been adorning, tea cozies and christmas stockings with them, more about that later, and I’ve also nearly made enough to begin stringing a garland!
