Now that I'm done arguing with my computer, I bring you the happy little yarn puffs:

I planned to blog about the poms before I blogged about the hat, but life intervened, and now the whole process post idea seems a bit drab. Suffice it to say I learned three things:
1. Pompoms use a LOT of yarn.
2. Pompoms do not grow back, so one must take care with the scissors when trimming them to shape.
Corollary: Sometimes a flat spot is best ignored.
3. Pompoms can make a heckuva mess. Trim them in an easily swept-up spot.
Corollary: Do not not trim over your computer keyboard, your contrasting-color wool sweater, or your lunch.
Note: The pompoms, while delightfully plump and plush, are now measurably smaller than they were in the photo above.

I really can't wait to make pompoms again!
