I got my contributor's copy of Pom Pom Quarterly in the mail last week. The week before? I'm not sure. These back to school days are such a blur! I'm finally settling into a routine and am working on more balance in my work and home life. Sometimes it's hard to squeeze in all the things that need to happen in a day!
I gotta say I *love* that my name is right there on the cover. With other mags you only get your name on the cover if you did something special. But this has the names of all the contributors. It's the perfect size for throwing in your knitting bag too, at a compact 6 1/2 x 9 inches. And with the nice heavy paper stock it's printed on, it's not gonna fall apart if you do!
The hand-drawn schematics for all the patterns are super sweet. The one above is for my Morganite cardigan. There are little stories included for some of that patterns, inspiration and technique insights that are lovely to read. And it wraps up with some recipes and more stories.
Squee! That's mine again on the back cover! I'm really, really impressed with this magazine. It has a different feel and look than other publications and I've gotta say I am quite honored that I was allowed to be a part of it. Go check out the Pom Pom Quarterly site and all the other amazing issues they've put out!
