The consensus of the votes were for pom-poms. Rachel even brought her pom-pom maker with her to spinning Wednesday. After spinning I got a couple made before picking up Brandon from work. We popped over to visit his grandfather (his health is failing and we don't expect that we'll have him this time next year) and do some computer work. So I entertained him with the pom-pom maker. By the time I arrived at Knit Night at Haggen's, I had four little pom-poms and could return the maker to Rachel. A few minutes work to sew them on to the ties and we have:

  1. I couldn't decide with or without poms but you definately chose correctly. The leg warmers are delightful.
    As for the socks, they're just right. Every man with a good sense of humor needs "Rutting Buck" socks. Wish that's what I'd made for my man.
