fork pompoms....

get a fork
cut a 6" piece of yarn

 and lay it between the centre tines

start to weave yarn over and under all the tines of the fork

until it is completely covered
cut the yarn 

and with the 6" piece tie a knot to hold it all together
move the "weaving" off the fork as you pull the knot...
if you have a hard time with the knot form a surgeon's knot
 which means tie the yarn around twice and pull tight....it will hold together while you make a second knot

you will have the sweetest cutest little curly whirly pompom
to do with as you wish  

make a few for plain old fun
