Before going, I was working on my latest scrap yarn basket
With the basket completed, I decided it needed a little something extra!!
I made a pompom using my smallest pompom maker, using a few different strands of different coloured yarns. However, putting it next to the basket, it looked enormous! I had to rethink, and remembered seeing a technique online using a fork, so gave it a go
It worked well, and was easy to do, just a bit tricky to get the scissors in to make the cuts, but the size was much more suitable!
You can see the difference in size. The fork is definitely a good way to make cute tiny ones!
So the next question was how many?? Just a single bunch each side?
Or a bunch either side of the handle on both sides?
Is there such a thing as too many pompoms?
What do you reckon, which do you prefer??
Whilst away I took the Mandala with me. Although its a huge size so not very practical to travel with, I didn't really have a portable project to take with me. Not only that I wanted to get back into the swing of doing it, and correcting my mistake.
I made a start on the train journey, as its a long 7 hour trip
Took relaxing moments in the garden
And worked on it in the evenings whilst watching the Olympics
So now I have competed week 12 and made a start on 13, but still quite a way to go yet!!
I'll just leave you with one last image, where Ive given my pompom image the Prisma treatment!
