I Don't Hate Making PomPoms Anymore

A little product review for you.

Prym PomPom Set 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 1: fit the arches together, back-to-back, and wind yarn around each.

Step 2: Fit arch sets together Step 2: Fit arch sets together

Step 4: Cut around groove 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!

I couldn't agree with you more! That pom-pom maker is one of the best things I've come across in a long time. In fact, several of my co-workers have purchased sets since they borrowed mine and discovered how easy it is to use!

I got it from a little shop here. It's the first place I've seen them (I tried googling for them, but haven't found them yet). I meant to go yesterday to just buy them out, but I didn't have a chance to.

I heard that Clover was coming out with an identical set, but haven't seen those yet either. That was the set that I'd actually heard of, and when I saw these (from Germany, I think), I snatched them right off the peg.

Since this round is practically over, and I'll know who you are soon, I think I can safely offer to pick up one for you.
