Sometimes you just need an easy craft.
Sometimes you just need a craft that you’re pretty sure you’re not going to screw up. I mean, I am all about trying things outside your comfort zone and failing miserably, but just for a change, sometimes it’s nice to actually be able to do something.
The hardest part is being able to reach your drink while you’re wrapping yarn around your fingers.
Yeah, I drink and craft. What? You wanna start something? (Incidentally, not only was I drinking and crafting, but I was also watching TV. Multi-tasking, bitches.)
This took surprisingly little time to complete.
Of course, the pom pom looks a little sad and needs a haircut, but that part is totally fun. It was really therapeutic, actually. Also, the pom pom got fuller-looking as I shortened it. (Balding people, take note: This works on heads as well. If you have a little less hair than you used to, cut it short. It’ll look fuller. I’m looking at you, combover ponytail dude.)
I almost cut off the tail by accident several times, so uh, don’t do that.
Also, this was messy. I had the forethought to put my sweatshirt in my lap to catch all the schnipples (that’s what my grandma calls all the little pieces that come off when you’re trimming something– Is that a thing, or is my grandma just weird?), but not the forethought to realize that yarn schnipples totally stick to fleece.
