Pom PomMay 02, 2012
I had lots of fun making pom poms over easter and have only just now got around to posting photos of the pom pom bunting I made for Emily's room. I was surprised by the variety of colours I had in my knitting stash. The beauty of pom poms is that you can make them out of your little left over bits of wool.
Some of these are made from 4ply wool and some from 8 ply but you really can't tell the difference once they are hanging up. I made the pom poms using this awesome method that I learnt via Fiona Dalton's book "Hop Skip Jump" when I was making the tail for this bunny. It only takes two minutes to make one vs about twenty minutes using the cardboard ring method. The pom poms on Bella Dia's blog are about one inch in diameter, mine are about two.
This pic gives a better sense of how the bunting looks completed than the one below - due to the lighting in Emily's room.
It does look very sweet and colourful above her window.

And I can't post today - May 2nd, without wishing my sweet little Juliette a Happy 2nd Birthday!!
