Trouble with Trebles

This blog is to keep track of my knitting, other craft projects, and the weird bits of life that don't fit anywhere else.

The Pom-Pom Squad

Having crafty friends means that you get really cool gifts like this:



For those of you who don't know, it's a pom-pom tree, used to quickly and easily produce pom-poms. My very wise friend decided that with a baby on the way, I was in dire need of same way to decorate knitted baby items. While I don't plan to force my poor infant to wear oodles of pom-poms like a small, human-like poodle, they really are a nice decorative touch on certain items. Take the recently adorned items below, for example:
Not only was I able to put the finishing touches on my spiderweb capelet (I will devote the next post to its specs), but I was also able to decorate these two cute baby hats. These hats will likely be stored away for baby gifts (have I mentioned that I always need lots of baby gifts; my friends are very fertile it would seem). If you have any need of making pom-poms, I can't say enough good things about the tree! Oh, and to answer the question posed by jenfromRI, I am feeling pretty good, but could really do without the indigestion and I do have to pee quite a bit more often than is considered usual.

cute for baby hats! I hope though, never to see your X-mas tree decorated with lots of yarn pom-poms as ornaments.
