A few months ago, I found a pompon 'loom' on sale at Wallyworld. I picked it up, thinking I might need one sometime. Lo and behold, when I was working on smallboy's hat, I thought it needed one. I dug out the loom, and made the perfect pom. A little sparse, but respectable.
Unfortunately, my second pom didn't come out at ALL. I had a HUGE pile of 2" strands, not a pom.
I attached the previous pom to the top of the hat, and today, I popped this in the mail for DGS. It's Schachenmayr Nomotta Gemini, 3 skeins, 279 yards. I got it last year when Herrschner's blew it out.
Kid clothing is so much fun! I used the Ann Norling top down cardi, and tweaked it a little for a shawl collar.
I think he will look soo handsome!
