The Daily Pompom No. 2

It's the bittersweet last day of term and as I walked through the school it was a mix of high-energy excitement for the next six weeks of freedom, and a surprising number of tears (from staff, kids and parents) and goodbyes - the year six leavers, some staff are moving on, and some kids just love their teachers so much they don't want to leave their class. We are very lucky to have such a lovely school. 

You may be wondering what this has to do with pompoms... or you may have already guessed. I hadn't planned this one, and it was entirely prompted by a comment Julia left on the blog a few days ago:
With five different teacher gifts ready to be wrapped, it was perfect timing... 
What could be easier? I left long tails and tied them on with a bow so they could be reused if the recipients would care to do so. This is a great use for scraps (I'm using the Stylecraft which is still left over from my crochet blanket because I hate it) and those yarns which come on the front of magazines. I have a feeling I'll be doing the same as Julia's daughter and making loads of them at Christmas time.

If you would like the chance to win a set of four Clover pompom makers in different sizes, head on over to yesterday's post and leave a comment. I'll be randomly selecting a winner on Saturday. Good luck!


  1. I never cry before summer break! :-)))) And I never cry when I go back to school.

  2. Gigantor POM POM!!! There's something about a pom pom that makes a person smile. I think I've seen this fun, wrapping idea. Great to see someone I know try it out successfully. They look great.

  3. I just got a mention on one of my most favourite crafty blogs! I'm so excited I just squealed and aforementioned daughter rushed over to see if I was ok! Your pressies look fab, and it is such a great way to use up wool that isn't nice to work with/clear some of your stash.
