The photo doesn't quite do it justice. This pom pom is SO BRIGHT. I almost chickened out and took it off. But fortune favors the brave! I've received many a compliment on the color combo, and it is quite the conversation starter. Also it's wonderfully warm and soft (alpaca-merino blend!).

I made it during the first "polar vortex" that hit NYC. I had a snow day from work, and I just huddled under some quilts next to the heater knitting away like a total Brooklyn cliche. It was lovely. I made up the pattern myself, and it was my first time doing seed stitch!  The whole thing makes me so happy- the colors, the warmth, the perfect fit, and just the thrill of making. Smiley
