When you said puffball, did you mean a pom pom? Pom poms take patience, but they aren't difficult. Here's a tutorial. Use more yarn than you think you need, and tie tightly.
LOL - yes, a pom pom.
It occurs to me that the main reason I can't get them to work is I don't use wool (allergy) so pom poms like to slip apart of their own accord. I always end up using soft slippery yarns because they feel so much better than scratchy synthetics. :)
I pulled out my blanket yesterday and it is so close to being done, I can't believe I stopped! lol! Well, once the main part is done I have to crochet the edges and I am not a crocheter at all, so that might take me the rest of the pregnancy.
OK... so the knitting on my blanket is done but the fabric I bought to line the back just shreds when I try to attach it via crochet (it's something like minkee). So... I can either leave it as a one-sided blanket that's pretty on one side and full of seams on the other (it's knit blocks quilted together) or I can sew the fabric to the blanket with a satin blanket edge. What would you ladies do?
Ok I ended up making a newborn diaper tonight too. (the brown one) Very busy day!
It's a fitted pocket. The white diaper is what I used for a template. It's an AIO called Wonderworks Babyco.
Alternating tab snaps make it super adjustable
Yes, what fabric did you use :-) I have some that I purchased but they keep working their way up and I spend most of the time adjusting them back down.
