I Smell Snow
This years Christmas Gifts for my nieces were hats based on the hat Lorelai Gilmore wore when she smelled snow. The hats were a simple pattern - 3" of a k3p1 ribbing followed by 7" of k2p2 ribbing. To make the hats special I planned to put a faux fur pompom on top of the hats. Luckily for my nieces, my dog Copper attacked the faux fur pompom which left me looking for a replacement pom pom in short amount of time.
I found these great pom poms from Lana Grossa at a Local Yarn Shop and they are the softest fur pom pom's I've encountered. In addition, they are attached via a snap, so you can take the pom pom off to wash your hat. They definitely made the hat. I have to thank Copper for helping me find these pom pom's rather than using the faux fur pom pom's I had originally planned to use.
Copper was kept far away from these new pom pom's, I wasn't going to chance her taking another set of pom pom's.
I have such great nieces because they truly appreciate all of the gifts I make for them.
