Every Gal Needs Pom Poms

I heart pompoms

It’s true.  Every gal needs pom poms in her life.  They’re cute, they’re fun and the name itself is darn fun to say.  Pom pom.

When I first started knitting, I hated pom poms.  I didn’t understand the point of having a tuft of yarn to top a hat.  But after looking at knitted pieces and patterns over the past couple years, the pom pom makes complete sense to me.  It’s the finishing touch.  And I love them best on ear-flap hats, right on the end of the I-cord that ties around your neck.

I finished another hat a couple weeks ago.  A kid-sized hat, with ear-flaps, pom poms and two little triangles on top – it was a kitty hat.  The hat itself is cute.  But the pom poms are my favorite part.  Fluffy, soft, perfect to tug on.  They make the hat, people.

Susan - Is this the hat for Miss M? I bet she *loves* it.

Brooke - For Kenna. I figured since I made the little guys in the office fun hats, the little gal deserved some too.

Fluffy - I love wool pom hats. A wool hat without a big fluffy pom is not a real wool hat.
