A Pom-Pom For A Knit Hat

Last year, I knit a series of wonderful hats for our family trip to Iceland.  I finished one of them, Fuego, mid-trip, during a hike to see some wonderful waterfalls and rainbows.

But, I didn't have a pom-pom maker with me, or any knowledge about how to make one, not being a pom-pom kind of girl.  So Fuego came back home with me, pom-pomless.  There was a brief flirtation with one after I found out how to make one, but I attached it too loosely and then it got hot and Fuego never got her pom.

Until today.

Fuego now has a big, fat, fluffy pom-pom.  She's complete, thanks to my fantastic Clover pom-pom maker.

Fuego was a fun hat to knit and I have no idea why this took me so long, but with temperature creeping down into the teens and snow in the forecast, I'm really happy to have her this weekend!

  1. How nice to be able to keep warm so fashionably. The windchill here is in the minus double digits and the news is telling us to stay inside because of the snowstorm and wind, so I’m not bothering to be fashionable.

  2. You know how much I love cold weather Joanne, so Im beyond jealous!  We should switch.
    I was looking at different sized pom-pom makers on Amazon after I finished the hat, and discovered there is a whole world of books that teach you how to make animals out of pom-poms.  They were absolutely hilarious and I imagine there will be some inevitable experimentation in my future.
