Did I write that I liked pompoms? I must have been totally out of my mind. Well, I do like the look of pompoms. But I must have forgotten ... I hate MAKING pompoms! It all came back when I started cutting two cardbord circles ... I never liked making pompoms! I loved crafting and crocheting even when I was a kid. But even then ... I did not like making pompoms! Making pompoms was one of those things that look "oh so easy". But once you start doing it you realize ... this is going to take FOREVER. And you are not patient enough and finish before there is enough yarn on the cardbord circles ... and the pompoms end up ... well, not exactly looking like pompoms ... BAD MEMORIES!
Anyway, I still gave it a try. It even did look like a pompom after I was done. (I still think that it takes a ridiculous amount of time and yarn to finish one of these little bastards!) But of course there was no way it could just work out ... the pompom was way too big! So I will have to try making new ones ... smaller ones. FRUSTRATING!
