While our friends are celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee across the pond, we are doing a little celebrating of our own. We kind of met our new friend Meghan, along with her friend Lydia, by happenstance through Ravelry. It seems the two friends, who met while working at Loop London, wanted to see “a magazine that strayed a bit from the norm, with patterns in it that the two would like to make themselves and treated its readers like friends”. Oh, and as Meghan put it “they also wanted to see some good graphic design.” We all know that “knitters are never just ‘knitters’ – we’re crocheters, embroiderers, foodies, music makers, art-lovers, and history buffs (among other things) too.”
pompom is a London-base quarterly knitting magazine created by the London born Lydia and D.C. ,via Boston (college) to London (English Literature Major) transplant, Meghan.
So as luck would have it, In The Loop will be the first and only shop in the US to launch pompom’s premiere issue, which includes 5 exclusive knitting patterns, some great articles, an embroidery tutorial and of course a cocktail recipe. We are totally Gobsmacked!
We wish Meghan and Lydia the best with their new endeavor and look for the magazines to be arriving any day now from London.
Cheers, TTFN and Bob’ Your Uncle!
