A gorgeous little bundle of fluff!

No, not a kitten, a pompom!!!

We had another awesome car boot find this week, a brand new Galt knitting set for 20p with a pompom maker inside. Worth well over £10 I’d say. What a result!! My daughter is thrilled. She now has her very own little knitting needles and French knitter but it’s the pompom maker that has caught her interest to start with. We now have lots of cute little pink balls around the house, serving as pillows for cuddly toys, balls for playing catch with and decorations for the doors. It’s great fun and so easy.  You just need an adult when it comes to the tricky cutting bit. Made me feel quite nostalgic to be honest. I remember making oodles of pompoms as a child, using two roughly cut-out cardboard doughnuts and masses of granny’s yarn. I would spend hours making them too!! Times have moved on though!! The pompom maker has evolved. Look at these little wonders!! Happy pompom-ing!!!
