Pom-Poms

Some months ago I bought a pack of Pom-Pom makers.They look a bit weird but how hard can they be to use?  After all we used to make our own Pom-Pom makers by cutting out two circles of cardboard (usually from dad’s cornflake packet, which didn’t go down to well at breakfast time), cutting a circular hole in the middle, winding the wool around, a bit of snipping and voila! One perfect Pom-Pom.  

All very well but I couldn’t work out what to do with them.  The instructions were pretty poor so I had to resort to a You Tube video to find out what to do.  And success!  My first Pom-Pom.Not as good as I hoped it would be but not bad for a first attempt.

And here it is attached to the Christmas Wreath.So, with apologies to my husband and sons, and any other visitors to my house, this is what will be gracing the front door over the festive period.  It’s go to be better than the rather sorry Wreath we’ve been using over the last 25 years – it was quite pretty when we first got it but it’s now so old that robin on it has gone bald.

I Forgot To Post

I can’t believe that I forgot to post any photos of my finished Tunisian crochet blanket.  Here it is:The yarn is Caron Cakes in Blackberry and Kiwi.  It’s the most expensive, best quality yarn I’ve ever bought and it’s worked up into the ugliest blanket I’ve ever made.   Never mind; for all that I don’t like the finished product I enjoyed making it.   I just won’t buy this yarn ever again.

I’ve also finished the Christmas wreath I made to go with the other four wreaths I made earlier in the year.  Marbles has been indoors this morning.  He hasn’t been helping me with my crochet today; he’s been far more interested in keeping himself clean.​
