You may have noticed I didn’t have an FO Friday last week. That’s because I was sent home ill from work, I face-planted my bed, and I slept.
So, since I don’t have a regular post on Tuesdays, and I just can’t wait to show off this pretty hat I made, I figured I’d catch up now.
So here it is:
Aren’t those colours just gorgeous!!
I totally gave up on ribbing the bottom; nothing I did looked right and I actually quite like it plain, so there it is.
This is the first pompom I’ve ever made myself (using cardboard circles because my pompom maker hasn’t arrived yet), and it came out a bit mutant at first
But a bit of work with the scissors soon sorted it out and now I’m really quite proud of it.
I struggled a bit to attach it securely though, it was really determined to flop about.
I’ve ordered some more of this yarn, and Mum has sent me a couple more skeins too, so I’ll definitely be making more of these to go in the shop.
What do you think of the hat? Any tips for attaching pompoms? Let me know in the comments!
