ok, so here's the question, do i like the pompom made the old-fashioned manual way:
or do i need to get a pompom maker:
the above photo courtesy of roy, my new knitterboypupil. the pompoms he made were put together using the small sizes of clover pompom makers. the prior photo is a hat i am making for my niece, the photo doesn't show the sparkly-ness of the blue yarn which is so cute, with a pompom made by me the manual way, with a debit card of course!! what do you guys think, should i invest in a pompom maker or keep to the messy tussled look?
