Memorandum Monday with pom poms

I've been playing with pom poms



using a pom pom maker for the first time - way easier than with bits of card like we used to.  Some are fuller than others because I was experimenting with size and fullness.

I added them to the bottom of a decorative strip I had crocheted

using a pattern for lace but with bigger hook and yarn.


Having just taken down my winter / snowman wreath I needed a spring decoration - before I put up my summer bunting.

At the talk of knitting I was at last week they were giving away some wool and I chose a small ball in these 5 colours because I thought they made a good spring palette - at the time I wasn't sure how I would use them. 

A big pompom wave to you all and hope you have a good week

Lovely. We had a Pom Pom maker when we were kids. I bet my mum still has it!

How very pretty. Like a string of bright tulips. I remember threading wool through circles of card cut from a cereal packet too!

It turned out adorable, so nice to have a use for your experimenting :)

Oh, don't they look beautiful! They have a bit of a canal boat look, maybe? I'm interested in the pompom maker. I've always wondered if they were better than bits of card. They certainly seem to do the trick.

Wishing you a great week

Very cheery looking. I haven't used any of the new pompom makers but still have my old plastic card one with the hole in it.
