Doing things: an update

A few weeks ago I blogged about my desire to try new things.

The Update

The Pom Poms on a string.
I purchased some beautiful wool and made 2 red Pom Poms. I joined the two Pom Poms with a cream coloured finger knitted string. The reside happily around my neck on a jacket or coupled with my new red cardigan.

Finger knitting is extremely easy. Make a slip knot over your finger, then place the loop on your left index finger and pull tight-ish. Make a second loop slightly closer to the tip of your finger, and then pull the first loop over the second loop and that is the stitch. Repeat until you have the length you want. To finish cut the string from your ball of wool and pull through.
