Notes

I loved this design the moment I saw it. It’s the perfect quick Christmas knit, and it’s helping a great charity.

I cast on at knitting last night, and I’m already over halfway through the knitted part. I made a MASSIVE pompom from one ball of Big Softie, but now I think I probably need to make the others a bit smaller, or you won’t see the knitted part of the wreath!

Off to investigate purchase of more pompom makers…

Pompom makers ordered. I hope that they come quickly as I intend on buying the lagging tomorrow to get this finished for the weekend. Can’t wait!

I’ve added a ridiculous pompom array. Not sure how well it works, but it’s made me smile, so that’s the main thing! :)
