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.
I also found the Eye of Sauron while digging through my buttons!
