Thanks, ladies. If you haven't emailed ThreeBlessings for the tut yet, you should (that is, if she is still offering it)! It's great. Like I said, I knew how to make the pom pom but couldn't get the pony o secure. I am thinking these will be cute in school colors or for cheer teams or abig black and orange yarnball for Halloween--the so-so one I made for my daughter last year was a black fuzzy yarn pom pom. I made it a pretty decent size. They look really cute on a ponytail.
