It must be the time of year for pompom projects, because I have been making one too. Using the Cascade 220 yarn left over from the baby's blanket, I made him a cabled hat with an overly large pom pom. Extremely cute, and just the tiniest bit ridiculous.
Oh, and pompom makers... what a revelation! There will be more pompoms to come before Christmas, you can be sure of that.
PS: I blogged a little about the making of the hat here on Circle of Pine Trees.Details of the hat are, of course, over on Ravelry
