Considering I've been making things with yarn for a few years, I'm surprised that it's taken so long to discover pompom makers. In fact, it only happened when I found myself with a few hours to kill and a voucher for some free makers in return for a supplying a few pom-poms to The Handmade Fair*. Let's just say they are addictive. Look out for some pompom projects and a giveaway coming to the blog next week. 
It's gone a bit pom-pom -tastic around here!
*See the insert in the current UK issue of Mollie Makes, which is also pompom-tastic!


  1. Last December I discovered the "wrap round your hand" method of pom pom making and showed my daughter who was home from Uni for the holiday. Then I went to work. When I got home she was sitting in the middle of a huge pile of pom poms and had used at least 1/4 of our odd bits and pieces of wool stash! Everyone had them on their Christmas presents and we still have a few left over! It really is addictive isn't it!?!
