The time has come and Pompom Quarterly’s beautiful Issue 8 is now for sale!
I am particularly over excited this time as this issue features my ISLINGTON fingering on the front cover! The gorgeous lace top pictured below is Waterlily by the lovely Meghan Fernandes, Pompom co-founder. I am so thrilled to see the design knit up after only having heard about it!
The new hue – Pom – is a refreshing mint green, barely tipped over the edge of turquoise so still glinting slightly of blue in different lights!
I love that Meghan has managed to highlight how great of an all-around-performer ISLINGTON’s BFL/Silk blend is through her design, showing off its well-balanced 4-ply structure working equally well at more complex lace stitches as with simple stockinette.
The top takes only 2-3 skeins of yarn and looks to be a fairly quick knit. I cast on Friday and am already well into the body! It is a relief to be knitting fingering again after over a month with Aran weight!
Pom was added to the shop Sunday, along with a number of new colours in the ISLINGTON blend, and some more stock on existing colourways:
Clockwise from top left –
Vestige, Light Squirrelly (new colour), Blighty, Old Smoke, Light Median, Chambray (new colour), Gold Dust, Felix.

That’s awesome, Linda! Congratulations!
