how i'm spending my evenings...

making these!

I'm spending my evenings threading wool around a plastic doughnut to make as many of these as I can. Any of you seen the accesorize windows recently? Our one has garlands made of tons of these strung around them, with accesories hanging off them. I have to walk past it every day, worse luck! I thought they would look great or christmas, either hanging over the mantlepiece, or around the tree like tinsel, or anywhere really! Anyway,I found out that these garlands are essentially the same as the scarves they are selling in store, just with a cord on the end so that they can be hung, so the price will probably end up being the same(ish) price when they come out of the window. No, I thought I'd make them instead! I'm got 8 so far... only about 20 more to go...

  1. I love the pom poms and the fact that you are thinking of christmas already. Nice to know I'm not the only one starting the festive planning before Halloween has even passed. Can't wait to see them all finished and hung!

  2. I helped run a pom-pom making stall at a library fete just the last Friday! Find them quite relaxing to make, but time consuming. Good for taking on planes though as not a pair of knitting needles / needle / crochet hook in sight!

  3. I LOVE pompoms! I'm lazy though and after 4 years of sitting in our 'assorted nonsense' drawer the remnants of my last half-made attempt went in the bin in out grand de-clutter last month.
