I should probably be working on one of the projects I've been needing to finish all summer long instead of getting distracted by something new. But when the yarn looks like this, can you really blame me? 😍
Not directly crochet related, or even knit related, but for the love of yarn, just look at these here pom poms! 💛💜💗💙💚These beauties are going to be part of a project for my baby lady's nursery!
On my last pom pom related posting several people asked how I got the poms so "PERFECT." Which, number 1, they are not. But for close to perfect poms I swear by the Clover Pom Pom makers. (I'm not endorsed at all, but hey, @cloverusa feel free!) I got mine at @joann_stores (in a two pack with the 2 1/2 & 3 3/8 sizes), but you can find them online too! (I think they retail for like $6.99 & of course I used a coupon). These don't automatically get you a perfect, plump puffy, pom, but they sure do help! The other secret is a lot of patience & a bit of mess. & If you're daunted by the process, YouTube has some great tutorials on how to use the Clover pom makers to achieve you're ideal pom pom! .
Anybody else have any pom trips & tricks?
I need advice/opinions. I’m at a crossroads as to the direction of this blanket. QUESTION : do I continue and repeat the rainbow pattern (GYORPVIBGYORPVIB) ..........💚💛🧡❤️💗💜💙💚💛🧡❤️ or do I double back on the green and go back to blue and continue the rainbow (GYORPVIBGBIVPROYGB)...................... .. ...... 💚💛🧡❤️💗💜💙💚💙💜💗❤️🧡? #rainbow #🌈 #rainbowyarn#rainbows#roygbiv#iloverainbows#crochet#grannysquare
I made this for my son. But I think he will probably demand a poncho like his sisters. 😳😅. We are currently on a family getaway. Stay tuned for pictures of the dolls exploring the Pacific Northwest. Wooohooo!!!! Got any last minute summer plans before school starts?
#rainbowyarn and rainbow sweaters is probably going to be a theme for the next little while. My lovely, sweet, wonderful, and chaotic nephews requested rainbow sweaters (well one wants a sweater and one a cardigan) for their Christmas (maybe birthday if I work fast) presents this year. This on top of the other one I was #knitting already. Thankfully, #knittingforkids is pretty fast.
Thought you might like to cast your eyes on a rainbow today. 😜. Here’s the poncho I have been working on. I left arm holes at the shoulders.
This is for my daughter for our trip to #seabrookwa
We are all so excited to walk the gnome trail again and discover all the gnome homes.

Slow, steady progress on the @hillcountryweavers @freiafibers biased scarf in #dirtyhippie 🦋🦄💖🐠🌼🌈When I took up knitting less than two years ago, I had no idea how much it could help #center me during times of stress, anxiety, weariness, and grief. It seems I found #knitting at exactly the right time in life.
When I first laid eyes on this it sang to me and I knew we were destined to be together. 😍 in fact her twin came too! I need to find the right project for this. It’s going to take some serious consideration. It’s from @siobhanscrafts and is the denim rainbow on her sock base. 💕💕💕#rainbowlove#rainbowyarn#whattomake
