One a Day

This week I have been able to keep up with my One a Day. I have done 10 rows of my custard scarf each evening and it is so lovely to knit.

The arrow shows where I was last week, and I thinking I'm just over a third done. So I might have to do two a day, to get it done within good time for Christmas.

Now I need some advice from you all(this is the greatest thing about the blogging community).
I really want to make a Pom Pom garland but can't face the thought of pushing wool though a cardboard ring :-(
I have seen some pom pom makers on Amazon, but need to know if anyone has used them and if so, which ones are any good?
I though I could add one of these each day onto my One a Day and would have a garland in no time.

I had some fantastic Christmas fabric arrive this week, which I want to make some more cushions with tomorrow. I think I may be addicted to blankets and cushions!! This week I also want to find the time to make some granny squares for this wonderful competition over at Stocki, Jill has start a 'Beautiful Blooger Blanket of 2012' which sounds wonderful.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments last week about my scarf, it really is so lovely that people take the time to leave a message. I'm now off to Gingerbread Girls to see all the fantastic projects everyone has been working on.


  1. Hi Joanne, I just love the scarf and the colour, can't wait to see it finished. I never used one of those pom pom makers. My grandad taught me to make pom poms with cardboard and i've never done them any other way. A pom pom garland sounds brilliant, can't wait to see it :)

  2. I can't help with the Pom Pom makers I'm afraid having never used them. I've thought about getting one before so I will be interested to see what other people think of them.

    The scarf is looking good, it's a very pretty colour too.

  3. Your scarf is looking really pretty. You are making great progress. Far more than I am considering it is a present for one of my kid's teachers and they break up a week on Friday!

  4. The scarf is lovely. As for the pom pom makers I do have a store bought one somewhere but have to admit to never using it. Pretty sure my daughter did a few times years ago and it worked just fine. The poms poms did indeed look like pom poms! Good luck! Hugs xox

  5. Making good progress, Im still loving the colour!! So happy to pass on the award to you, you are very talented!

  6. Your scarf looks wonderful, I love the colour! Great idea a pom pom garland! I´m sorry, I can´t help you with the pom pom maker too. I have never used one.
    I hope you will manage it somehow, I want to see your garland! :)

  7. Wow - great progress!

    I can't help with the pom pom makers, but there are loads of tutes for making small pom poms around a fork on Pinterest if you search. Don't know if that's any help?

  8. Your custard scarf is yummy! Can't help with the pom pom makers either I'm afraid, Judy x

  9. You asked a great question about pom pom makers as I was thinking of getting some also!
    That scarf is coming out so awesome! You doubled what you had done in a week. That's great.

  10. I'm not sure about the pom pom thingy but the scarf is looking beautiful. xx


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
