Spring fever has a strong hold these days. Especially if you are on the East Coast and facing down yet another snowstorm. These tastes of warm weather, followed by snow, are just too much of a tease.
This eagerness to get outside and do fun things in the sunshine is manifesting itself in our knitting by a desire to work on fun, colorful projects.
Pompe yarn from Ella Rae fills the need on many levels.
This 100% Acrylic yarn is available in 15 fun colors, four of them are new, and has pompoms already attached to the yarn.
The Pompe book includes seven adorable patterns for children using this unique yarn.
The cushion, shown above, uses four hanks of Pompe. This would be such a fun decoration for a child’s room, or maybe even for a teenager with a sense of humor.
Along with the cushion, this blanket is fabulous. It takes seven hanks of Pompe yarn. The pompoms give it a unusual texture that will be fun to cuddle and play with.
Who doesn’t like to have a pretty purse to tote around our special items? This cute bag takes just one bag of Pompe!
For a bigger purse, with a flap closure, check out the Party Purse pattern on Ravelry.
Another fun project I saw on Ravelry was this scarf that a knitter made for her college age daughter.
If you’re still in winter wear knitting mode, this hat and scarf set for your peanut is a free pattern on our main website.
You can use our Store Locator feature to find a store near you that carries Ella Rae Pompe so you can see it in person.
