Knotty lamb is excited to be able to offer Take Heart from Pom Pom in our shop.
Pom Pom is are beyond excited to reveal their newest incarnation - the Pom Pom Press! Their love of print now extends beyond the realm of magazines and their very first book is Take Heart: A Transatlantic Knitting Journey by Fiona Alice.
You may recognise Fiona’s name from the gorgeous patterns she has designed for Pom Pom Quarterly in the past, and Pom Pom is thrilled to be able to expand upon her distinctive design aesthetic, beautiful illustration style, and thoughtful writing.
Take Heart traces a path across the Atlantic from Fiona’s hometown in Nova Scotia, to where she now resides in London. The book was photographed by longtime Pom Pom collaborator Juju Vail, with the stunning Welsh seaside as the backdrop.
Each pattern is lovingly illustrated by Fiona, along with heartfelt writing detailing her inspiration behind each one. Pom Pom believe that handmade objects are imbued with the stories of those who make them, and nowhere is that more evident than here.
