pompom - Spring 2018
pompom quarterly is a wonderful magazine covering knitting crochet crafts fashion art food.
In issue 24 the contributors have designed their knits using a postage stamp as inspiration. Where possible, each design uses a yarn which originates from the same country as said stamp and these ten patterns are certainly something to write home about. Each stamp has been re-imagined by Elena Skoreyko Wagner and her playful paper cut illustrations are dotted around the knits and throughout the issue.
Anna Maltz their regular columnist is musing on the connection between stamps and knitting style, Meghan Fernandes explores how snail mail links our long-distance knitting relationships, and artist Grace Chin explains her process as a paper artist. There is also tasty pie recipe by Rebecca Lawrence – a perfectly portable parcel of comfort food.
We hope that this issue has your stamp of approval too!
