A little product review for you.

|Prym PomPom Set
Yes, you can use 2 circles of cardboard. I also have a set of disks that get the job done. But this inexpensive set of arches made winding the yarn (the most annoying part when working w/ a disk) extremely easy. Purchased at Ewe-Nique Knits, Royal Oak. Directions are in several languages, including English. Absolutely recommend this (see last step for the second best part: the price (the best part is how freaking easy it was to use)).
|Step 1: fit the arches together, back-to-back, and wind yarn around each.
|Step 2: Fit arch sets together
|Step 4: Cut around groove
Then, tie a length of thread between the 2 circles and tie. Remove circles. Tie pom-pom tightly, fluff, and trim.
I forgot to take a pic of the finished pompom, but it was big and fluffy, exactly the way I wanted it.
Best of all... this set cost me less than $3!
