A Pompom A Day

Following on from my 2012 project to knit a sky blanket (inspired by this awesome sky scarf project) I've decided to pompom the sky - making one pompom a day for (almost) a year to record the weather and create a fluffy record of a year in my life.

Here are (most of) the pompoms from the first month:


The colours of each pompom are based on how the sky looked at midday that day.

I'm using the same yarn that I used for the sky blanket, but instead of knitting with two strands of yarn I'm making pompoms with six strands... so there are lots of possible colour combinations!

Because of the different colour combos, I need to keep track of which pompom is from which day...

... so I'm tying a little paper "tag" (a small bit of paper with a hole punched in it and the date written on it) to each pompom.

I'm keeping my day-to-day list of colours as a back-up in case one of the tags falls off, but the tags should make it nice and easy for me to put the pompoms in order when I reach stage two of the project. 

In the meantime, the pompoms are proving lots of fun to make and I think they look rather wonderful together!
