Tiny pom-pom

Tiny pom-pom

Nov 21 – 9:30am to 4:00pm

Lynette is teaching

Need a perfect pom-pom?  Tassels tie you up?  Always wanted to add that perfect personal touch?  This is the workshop for you! Come to the workshop with some items to finish or just come with yarn – and you will learn how to make that perfect pom-pom, tie up the tassel, knit I-cord for miles, duplicate stitch on that little duckie or even place a bead or two with a crochet hook. Please bring a swatch or two to play with – 4×4 inches square – any gauge.  Some knitting on the needles would be a good idea as well – working with 3.25mm needles, cast-on some sock weight (4-ply) yarn and knit a few rows…..

Duplicate Stitch

Duplicate Stitch

And yarn – bring lots of yarn – different colours and weights;

  • if you want to learn how to place beads with a crochet hook, bring some 6.0 beads and a .75mm hook;
  • a blunt tapestry needle is needed for duplicate stitch;
  • and an old cassette or cd case for tassel making;
  • for pom-poms bring a pom-pom maker, a fork, and some cardboard!
  • Please don’t forget your regular notions – scissors are particularly important!

Cost is $60.00
