I popped into Pat Catan's on my way home this afternoon because I was hoping to pick up a set of US size 1 double pointed knitting needles. They didn't have them.
They did, however, have a cool looking set of pom pom makers on sale for $2. I was extra enticed because I had recently been reading about Erica's adventures with pom poms over on her blog. I know I could easily make pom poms with 2 pieces of free cardboard, but this seemed like an opportunity to have way more than 2 bucks worth of fun. I bought the set.
The instructions were pretty straightforward but I'd be lying if I said my first attempt didn't end up as a useless pile of 3" pieces of yarn. Oops.
I only had one failed attempt, though, and then it was smooth sailing.
I'm super excited about using some pom poms in a knitting project now! I'm not sure what that project will be, but I'm sure I'll think of something. Do you have any suggestions?
Happy (unofficial) pom pom day!
