I love my pompom maker. This one is a Clover branded product that gives a modern edge to pompom making.
It looks like a complicated gadget, I however, Clover includes clear instructions on wrapping your yarn on the arms of this device.
I recommend using a pair of sharp pointed scissors to snip the yarn around the disk.
Give the pompom a trim…
And attach it to your Toque.
Wishing you a Happy Easter from Knitting HQ!
You know you are getting older when items you vividly remember from the past is labelled vintage…
metallica: stitch holder, knitting needles & crochet hooks…
afghans: who knew that my mom’s crocheted afghan from the 1970’s is the hottest item to have
very chic and Chanel: my search is over for the perfect handknitted Chanel suit
I love the rhythm a spinning drop spindle as it gains speed and momentum. My fingers draft out the fibers, and magically the twisted fibre becomes handspun.
Handspinning is relaxing and it is instant gratification as I can spin 50g faster than I can knit it.
There is a spinning frenzy once a month in Dublin at the Eastern Region meeting of the IGWSD.
Drop in with your spindle, spinning wheel, weaving loom or handspun and work that fibre this Sunday 13th March from 2pm to 4.30 pm at The Constant Knitter.
