The Pom Pom Factory

The past few weeks I have been making Pom Poms, 50 to be exact.  Why? I hear you cry, well..... my daughter has a knitted hat with Pom Poms on it that her grandmother made for her and everywhere we go we get such positive comments about her hat.

C'est mignon! It's cute! is just one.

So I decided to make a few to sell on my stall at the market and on my website. There is a special wool themed market in Jarnages on the 4th December so I am building up my knit wear stock for the event.

An idea which has turned out to be a labour of love, each hat has 7 Pom Poms (or Pon Pons as they call them here in France) so as the hat is available in 7 colours, 50 Pom Poms are required. Luckily I can make these as I relax in front of the TV of an evening, but I can safely say I won't be making any more Pon Pons in the near future.

The hats themselves will be available to buy on the website and on the market stall soon.
