Shake Your Pom-Poms

Shake Your Pom-Poms

Way back in June, I did the fall ordering for the shop.  It’s always fun, one of the best parts of my job!   It was fun to see all the bright colors for fall, and now that they are filling up the shop it’s even better.  I am so excited about all the new things, it kind of just bubbles over!  I really wish I could sample each and every yarn, but do to the fact that I have only two hands, I have to be a little choosy.  (I know, it’s a tough job!)

I was so excited when I found these big fur pom-pom’s!  I really didn’t know what I’d do with them at the time.  But as soon as they came in, I couldn’t wait to use them.

And then I knit another one, in softer colors.

A fun, fast and funky scarf, easy to wear, easy to gift!  Two Christmas gifts done, (in October),  makes me want to shake those Pom-pom’s!

    Love your scarf, I want to make it but I can’t make a Pom Pom to save my life. Do you remember where you purchased yours? Thanks again for the pattern!

    How do the pom poms hold up to washing?
