Pom Tree Demonstration

Hi Knitters,
Today I am adding pom-poms on my scarf and we made a video while I did it. My son has been gone so much with school and sports that we haven't had much time to shoot these video tutorials. I am glad we got one done today. The Pom Tree is a great invention and you can order your own here. This link is on my sidebar as well.

Pom-poms are really a hot trend again. I am seeing them everywhere and really big poms too! It is very fun. The scarf I am adding pom-poms to is a Teva Durham design I knitted awhile ago from here. I used a double strand of Elsbeth Lavold's Silky Wool. It is a lovely scarf.

Enjoy!
best, susie

Thank you for the tutorial - I bought the pom tree back when you suggested it at your shop:) I'm nothing if not a craft gadget hog! The picture with the scarf is great - you look great, happy, rosy cheeked - great candid shot - and the scarf is wonderful too, of course. Happy Holidays!

Beautiful scarf!

I have a loom-knitter friend who make the world's best pom-poms. I ask her to make them for me when I need them because hers are so much prettier and fluffier. It has led to some off-color discussions by a few coworkers over "who has the best (and biggest) pom-poms!" Too funny. But she wins either way, so I'll just let her be my Pom Tree!!

Merry Christmas!
