Hey everyone, how’s it going? Hope you’re all doing well. I have a short post for you today just to show you some things I’ve been making recently.
My neighbour just had a baby so I decided to knit a baby blanket for my mom to give her. I’d bought a ball of blue pom pom yarn because it seemed so soft and I’d knitted a small blanket up with that but I was still unsure about how I felt about the pom pom yarn. My mom loved it though and requested a baby blanket so I went out and bought two balls of yellow and white pom pom yarn to knit the blanket for her.
I have to say, I do love the end result of knitting with pom pom yarn. It is super soft and cozy! I still don’t know if I actually like knitting with it though! I’m fairly certain, however, that there will be a lot more baby blankets being knitting from it in the future.
I also made a baby card to go with it, the one on the left below. I’d bought this paper pack of yellow and grey papers – half with baby patterns and half with just plain, any occasion patters – and had this idea in my head of the paper folded backwards.Unfortunately, I didn’t know where to go with the card after that so I just made a bow, stuck it down and left it at that.
Good thing I had some spare yellow new baby cards made that I could give to go along with the blanket because not every card you make will be a success!
But yes, that’s all for this post. Let me know which card you prefer, the one on the left or the one on the right. Also, if you’re a knitter, have you ever used pom pom yarn? Do you have any tips for using it?
