Summer Stripes from Pom Pom Quarterly

 

We are loving Pom Pom Quarterly's latest collection. It's full of simple and wearable summer garments featuring stripes of all sorts!

It starts with a breezy, oversized tee in one of our favorite yarns, Shibui Knits Reed. Herrera features subtle and flattering stripes, a deep vee back, and plenty of fluid drape, thanks to the chainette structure of this beautiful linen yarn.

The Anni top utilizes a clever slip-stitch pattern to create easier-than-it-looks vertical stripes, so you can worry less about the process, and have fun playing with colors. Knit in Juniper Moon Zooey, it has the right balance of crispness and squish, and will be a timeless knit in Zooey's palette of subtle neutrals and mellow colors.

For an even quicker project, how about the Judoka bag? Straightforward knitting plus clever folding and sewing make this a project that even a new knitter can accomplish, with stunning results. Written for three sizes (the smallest and largest are shown), you just might want all three!

We are thinking of working this one up in crisp Ito Gima, a tiny cotton tape yarn, for its strength and interesting texture. Or maybe Spincycle Dyed in the Wool, with its built-in stripes!

Bihn is Back!

The Tom Bihn "Maker's Bag" is finally back! Following "The Swift", this messenger bag was designed for Makers on the go -- to "support all of us—knitters, architects, robot makers, foragers, writers, designers, teachers, or painters—in our making." It has 12 pockets to hold literally everything, a flap to keep things covered and an awesome shoulder strap that is comfy and secure.

 

It sold out a few times directly after the launch that we've just restocked now!

Be sure to check us out in their product video! We had a lot of fun filling the new bag with all sorts of knitting and fiber goodness. (Not shown in the video: The interior pockets hold drop spindles quite nicely...)
