I had picked up these sweet soft balls of pretty coloured wool mid week with the intention of making pom poms for headbands. So i pinched some cardboard from a project one of my girls was working on (later found out it was actually important, ooppss) i cut out doughnuts (a champagne flute made a good measure to trace) & i started poking wool round & round & round & round. As i got to the end of the thread which i cleverly doubled over to do the job in half the time, i tried to remember how i used to make them as a child. I don't like following instructions & i like making my own patterns & templates, so i winged it!!
Of course, there were instant requests for pom pom scarves & toys, giant novelty pom poms & more, clearly i appeared to know what i was doing. I think in the light of day, i'll try my luck at larger sizes, so i can do triple pom pom headbands (different colour & size pom pom combinations) & see how time saving it is to do quadruple ply. Personally, i just like saying the word Pom Pom!! Or Pomme Pomme, oh la la.
Thanks for all your well wishes about me being unwell yesterday. As suspected, i was only down for one day with my sore throat, it didn't eventuate into anything & was nothing a giant hot chocolate couldn't soothe today at Shop Handmade, ahhhhhh. We're very lucky in this household, the children rarely get ill either, they're much more likely to endure a sports injury!! They have never been runny nose or coughy, vomity bug type of children, yet they run around barefoot in knickers in Winter in freezing CANBERRA!! It's zero when we head to school each morning, do you think any of them wear their school jackets?? Maybe we all should do that??!! Brrrr, no thanks. Have happy weekends everyone. Love Posie
