Bunchalong 2018: The Great Bunchening!


#142

That’s a pretty yarn!


#143

Thanks! It’s Windham in Superb Starling Blue!


#144

They are superb and I smile every time I think of Superb Starling as a color name.

Bunching along. But I have a question - notice there are no pom poms? Anyone have a recommendation for a good pom pom maker? Any pom poms I’ve made before without a tool have been floppy and uneven. Help!


#146

I’ve made terrific pompoms with both the Loome tool and Clover makers.


#147

I found this article really helpful for making poms:

#148

Same although I just gave away my Clover makers because they are a stretch for my memory to remember how to set up the tool each time…#agingbrain


#149

I just Loomed and attached my poms! Sister hats for a pair of young neighbors.


#150

Outstanding pompoms!!! Luv the hats😊


#151

Stranded Diamonds Hat… Christmas is coming!


#152

Thanks for the suggestions!

The Chalice Cowl is a wonderful knit! I was so thankful to receive the Bunchalong gift and used it to purchase yarn for a sweater. Ordering an extra skein provided just enough to knit this wonderfully squishy cowl. Looking forward to casting on the Appleseed Mitts next!

Finished the Slip-Stitch Cap for my granddaughter tonight at Guild. Made the pompom but waited to get home to trim it since there’s such a lot of tiny yarns floating around. Used Lion Wool Ease worsted (in the stash) held double because a hat for a 4 year old needs to be able to be washed and dried.
