POM POMS!!!

I have been bitten by the pom pom bug. No, I haven’t made any pom poms yet, but I really really want to. Unfortunately, all my scissors have gone missing so I will have to put off the pom pomming until tomorrow afternoon, but when I start, boy howdy, you will NOT want to miss it.

Do you know how awesome this is? (And, I want to be clear, how not mine this is):

Pom Pom

It’s pretty ballin’, that’s for sure.

I just finished a hat (waiting to be photographed, it’s a little dark right now) and decided to top it with a pom, as I hear that’s the style these days. Also, I saw another girl wearing a hat similar to the one I had knit and hers had a pom, and it looked adorable. So I’m going to make a pom pom for my newly-finished hat. I’m playing around with the idea of a pom pom that is larger than the hat itself. A mega-pom, if you will. An ultra-pom. A colosso-pom. A pom so legendary, that I would constantly be accidentally hitting it on the underside of doorways. I’m not sure if it would be too top-heavy, or whether it would look dumb. Thoughts?

  1. The hat in the picture looks nice but I was also wondering if it would be top heavy. Or annoying if it was bouncing from side to side.

  2. Go big or go home! Besides, you can always trim it smaller…… :smile:

  3. That is the largest pom I have ever seen. I think you should go even larger. :)

  4. I’ve been seeing large poms everywhere lately:
