My new favorite little thing

last month or so, i went to michaels and they were having an awesome sale on yarn. While i was grabbing as much as my little pocket book could hold, i also picked up a set of pom-pom makers. before, i was just doing the whole wrap around the fingers thing and having to trip a lot of the pom-pom away. but those little things- i LOVE. i think they've got me looking for more reasons to make pom-poms now.
my first one didn't turn out too pretty, but i've learned that it was because i didn't wrap it around tight enough. i used the medium sized maker for the pom-poms that are attatched to an earflap hat that i made last night and will be listing very soon.

I love the way this hat turned out!
so much so that i'm thinking of doing a more girly version (even tho this one could be worn by both sexes)


  1. I'm with you on the pom-pom maker - I discovered them at Christmas time....perfect topping for berets...they are so cute!

    Love the earflap hat...would love to see a more 'girly' version! (tho this one's pretty cool!)

  2. I didn't even know there was a pom-pom maker! Oh man, I HAVE to get a job at Michaels now! Lovely hat also. Brown and blue = love.
