I skipped on my weekly roundup last week for the holidays, which means today’s picks cover more than usual. And as it’s a new year, I think I’m going to expand my picks of the week to include other yarn projects like fancy pom poms, macrame, and weaving. I’m new to funky poms, but I would love learn how to make & design cool poms of my own! My Christmas gift to myself this year was a set of pom pom makers in four sizes, so I’ve got no reason not to learn a new yarn craft. Anyone else have creative goals for 2015? Let me know in the comments!
