One of our most exciting finds at TNNA this year was a magazine. Most of our TNNA orders wont arrive til August or later, but this one we received right away, selling out and reordering in less than a week. Just what is this exciting new publication? Meet Pom Pom Quarterly!
I’d heard of Pom Pom Quarterly before our trip to market, seen patterns from this pretty publication pop up on Ravelry, but I’d never held it in my hands.
As the Pom Pom founders and editors point out on their website, knitters are a tactile bunch, and to that end, they’ve made sure that the physical product is something very special. From the paper quality to the size of the magazine, Pom Pom is a pleasure to peruse. It also comes with a download code for the digital edition, so you can have it both ways.
Then there’s the content, which is just as thoughtfully created. Pom Pom features patterns, tutorials, and articles on knitting, crochet, and other crafts, along with the odd recipe, personal essay, or other surprise. The photography is beautiful, the designs are fresh, modern, and wearable, and the tone of the whole publication is enticing and inspiring.
I spotted some familiar yarns, too; the “Red Bud Isle” tank above is knit in Berroco Modern Cotton, and “Thornett” below calls for Isager Bomulin.
The Summer 2016 issue of Pom Pom Quarterly is back in stock and going fast – hurry in, or give us a call at (919) 732-2128 if you’d like to claim a copy!
