A few weeks ago I posted about the dire need for you and all your friends to wear pom-poms lest you look like backwater rubes (Backwater Rubes is next winter’s look).

As with blocking knit work, a bit of care makes a world of difference in finished appearance. When first cutting a pom-pom apart, it looks like an adorable shaggy dog, which may be your cup of tea. Super! Trim any major stragglers and attach it merrily. But for a neat and compact little feller, it’s just a matter of snipping around and around until you have a spherical orb of delightful fluff. This may take a while.

Now I too know the heady swirl of God-like power the New York Times’ fashion section must feel when, sitting around their gold-and-mother-of-pearl-inlaid table sipping fine brandies, they pull a whim from the ether and foist it upon the world not just as reality, but necessity. Oh, how they must laugh thinking of the poor peon sent forth to photograph whatever random absurdity they declare ‘trend’, giggling as they bar them from reentry until 6-10 photos from the millions of New Yorkers out and about on a daily basis are captured reflecting their warped view.

So Say I: POM POMS ARE IN!

Celebrities are wearing them!

They’re all over the runways!

They’ve infiltrated popular culture!

They’re on Etsy!

OMG POM POMS THEY’RE EVERYWHERE WHY DON’T YOU HAVE ONE ON YOUR HEAD RIGHT NOW?!?

Lucky for poor you, I have not one but several be-pommed hats to work up quickly.


(This picture is infinitely more funny if you look at each individual girls’ expression and imagine her saying “Bitch, please.”)

Bitch, PLEASE.
