Look At My Balls!

 Ooooo!




 Ahhh!

Damn, girl...is that dust in those seams?
Ugh!
Nothing like showing your filth all over the Internet.
I swear it doesn't show up in person. It's the flash.

ANYWAY...

Do you love my pom-pom garland? I do! I saw them the other day on THIS BLOG and thought they were so cute and HAD to make some of my own to hang on the fireplace. It was nice to have it bare for a while after Christmas, but I'm in the mood for something more now.

I used two skeins of Knit Picks Brava Sport that I had in my stash. I would have made two more, but I ran out of that color of yarn (Camel Heather). It's got a greenish, khaki tint to it that doesn't show up in these pictures. It's a very weird color so I'm glad I found something to use it for. I wouldn't recommend buying it just from seeing the color here.

You can see I have a fire in the fireplace today. We had big, fat snowflakes this morning, but it's all turned to rain now. I think our high temp is in the lower 40s today. I'm going to sit here and get out those new knitting needles now. I keep saying that, but I never do. I swear I'm going to right now!

See ya later with something knitted!
Now why did I say that and commit myself?
Okay, bye.

  1. I didn't see the dust until you pointed it out. I tend not to get that type of dust until I am deep cleaning (expecting out of town company). Santa put a pom-pom maker in my stocking a few years ago, but I have been afraid to try it because the instructions looked a bit scary. Very nice garland. I love garlands/buntings/etc.

  2. Love the Pom-poms Pammy Sue. They look perfect hanging there. I haven't made any in years and years. Maybe high school? Hmmmm. What are you going to knit with your new needles? You probably told us and it's my mushy brain that's forgetting at the moment. :-) Have fun!
    Blessings,

  4. Love it! How did you get them so even and uniform? Mine always come out cockeyed. Never mind the dust; it's not a problem until someone writes in it. Cold and rainy here, too, but no snow. Good hooky weather. Enjoy your knitting :-)

  13. Hey, you're pretty good with the pom-pom making Pam. Wish mine would come out looking like that. I think I told you mine usually fall to bits and never look nice and round like they should. What are you going to knit? Those dishcloths Teresa is making would be a good start and you'd end up with something nice and useful. Have fun. xox

  17. Oh how fun, pom-pom bunting! Those would also be cute made in colors to coordinate with some of the holidays throughout the year. They look really cool on your fireplace. :) Happy Weekend, penny x

  18. Dust is a protective covering. :-) I never would have noticed it and around our house, dusting is far down on the priority list. Your bunting looks great on the fireplace and the color goes nicely. The doily on your last post is gorgeous. Have a happy Friday! Heather

  22. Damn girl!!! Your balls look nice and soft. LOL I have a thingamawhoosie for making pompoms but it's not like yours. Maybe I can make some Christmasy ones for hanging around doorframes or something. But not right now though. We're expecting more snow to come down again sometime today. I needs to write on my blog today too.
    Have a great weekend!

  24. What a fun way to use pom-poms! I think that's my favorite garland that I've seen yet!

    Have a great weekend.

  25. Love your balls! Don't let the dust worry you,I've probably got more at my house. Who has time to dust when there's crocheting to do!

  26. Beautiful!! I loved Kates and I love yours - and I love mine!! Great minds obviously think alike! xx

  27. Oh sorry Pammy Sue, I just type and assume everyone knows what I am saying, I meant to say That I had seen (at peoples homes) a lot of flags or pendants strung up across the fireplaces and over beds, and the puffy balls are a nice change of pace. Not that I don't like the cute and creative pendants :)

  28. Looks utterly gorgeous spammy Sue ! Xx

  29. This post has the right ingredients to make it into a very twisted post on my blog, bahaha!

    In any case, love the design and the hairy balls. Makes me feel very warm and fuzzy for similar reasons.

    Also, I wouldn't recommend balls and fire nearby. Experience shows It's not a pretty sight should they be dragged down enough as a result of the earth's pull... or whatever.
