Put a Pompom on it.....

 Even though the colours I use may look as though I have blindly chosen them from a bag full of yarn, I am actually very fussy about my choices. And if I get a 'not quite right' combination, it can drive me up the wall. I found my self in this situation last night, feeling that the red was a bit too sharp for the blanket. After a while of humphing, I decided that rather than tear back all of the rounds until I reached the 'splinter', I would soften it by working over the 2 rounds with a pale green pompom trim (from here-although I slightly modified the pattern so that it would sit flat).
I am sooooo happy with it and now feel that I should do a few more pompom rounds. It kind of reminds me of a chenille bedspread. It makes me wonder what other mistakes in my life I can cover with pompoms....
Lots of love,
Kate. xxooxx

  1. Yeah!! That's clever!! I think if we replaced weapons with pom-poms we would all be better off, just saying.

  2. I don't find the red disturbing, but I understand your feelings. If you're not happy with it, you must change it. I love your blanket, the pompons are a very nice extra. Kind regards from Belgium, Sigrid http://www.katkatkatoen.blogspot.be

  5. That was such a brilliant idea. I think you maybe you should add a few more rows of poms poms. I personally love the red as well!

  6. I have seen you choosing colours and know it is not a matter of 'that'll do.' It's a very time consuming, contemplative decision. :-) Look forward to seeing this in person one day. Well done. Ingenious fix!
