October 23: Pompoms!
October 24, 2012 § Leave a comment
There is only a week left until Halloween, and our costumes are not quite ready yet. We are close, though, and today I made pompoms for our hats. Can you guess what we are going to be for Halloween?
I have to mention Laura again for sending me a link to a great blog post, The Perfect Gift: Yarn Ball Bookmark, which had easiest instructions for a pompom I have seen.
I realized that I started this project so I could find more time for myself during the day, not so I would do the projects at night instead of sleeping; so I made the pompoms at 5pm and it was great. The effects were calming and invigorating both, just as the article I mentioned yesterday promised. Working with yarn made me want to learn to knit again. Or maybe I will just knit a scarf for O. Certainly, I can knit that much.
