Pom Pom Quarterly: Autumn 2019.

The Autumn 2019 issue of Pom Pom Quarterly has arrived here at the shop!

The patterns and colors in this issue are inspired by the coast – ocean waves, sand and pebbles, shells and sailor’s knots.

As ever, there are a variety of knitting techniques on display in this issue – stripes and stranded colorwork, gansey-like knit and purl textures, slipped and twisted stitches, and more.

There’s also an essay on sailor’s knots by Clara Parkes, a briny quick pickle recipe, and even a bit of poetry from natural dyer Ocean Rose – just the kind of quirky, interdisciplinary flourishes that make Pom Pom such a special publication.

Come by the shop to get a closer look at this issue of Pom Pom, and pick up a copy to inspire your stitching!
