THAT BURNING RING OF FIRE to quote JOHNNY CASH.
I have made the POM-POM the old fashioned way with two pieces of cardboard cut into a ring donut shape. Wind the yarn round and round until it is covered and plump, then cut around between the two pieces, tie a piece of wool tightly between cardboard rings until secure, then slide off the cardboard and VOILA a POM-POM.
This is the finished hat.
Ronald is not amused at the millions of orange fibers scattered over the sitting room as if I had fired the POM-POM out of a SHOTGUN!
