Mother's great grandson was born yesterday so she is knitting a hat etc.
My job was to make pompoms. Although I'm a Niner rider, I have never made one, but using the idea there must be a tool for everything, I ordered a kit and got busy.
A couple of practice go's and here is my first one.Attached File  IMG_20210406_164516.jpg   102.91KB   0 downloads

Nothing wrong with that, you'll be moving on to the next essential skill - knitting. On Saturdays when us grandkids used to visit nan's, we weren't allowed out to play until we had knitted at least one dishcloth each out of string. I swear she was selling them to neighbours to pay for all her Consulate menthol smokes !

Mum has been trying to get me knitting for years.
Sticking with what I know. Lathes and miller's.
My idea of a baby present wasn't well received by the new mum.

I'm not going to accuse you of only thinking of yourself....but have you merely bought that to keep yourself at the lathe making more stainless improvements ? ;)

Perhaps this might fit both bills AND let you practice your newfound skills?
