pom pom quarterly

Have you heard of Pom Pom Quarterly? It's brand new on the knitting scene, a sassy import from the UK. Printed at a smaller than usual scale on gorgeous matte paper, it is filled with charming hand drawn illustrations and tasteful touches like a list of what current contributors are listening to while they create. The patterns are fresh and adorable, and they have just enough knitterly detail to broadcast your skills to the world without slipping into fiber fashion victim territory. 

I was very happy to contribute an article to their most recent issue, available here. You'll have to get your hands on the issue to see what I have to say about shopping for leather and closures in unusual locales, but I thought I'd share some of the photos I submitted here. I'm particularly enamoured with a swing clasp that I found at my local leather good supply, MacPherson's here in Seattle. I used it to close the Sweet & Tough Ducan Scarf shown above (download the free pattern here). The heavy antiqued brass was the perfect way to offset the frothy Schulana Ducan

 

From the top: 1. Bolts of leather on display at MacPhearson's 2. Picking up cabling ideas from leather braiding manuals 3. Dyed fish skins 4. Strips of supple leather lacing 5. Leather lacing used to embellish a men's hat 6. Gilded skin from an ostrich shin 7. Ragga Eirkisdottir using an Icelandic sheepskin to stay warm [photo by Jared Flood] 8. Scrap bin at MacPhearson's, the perfect place to find elbow patches and trims.
