Pom Pom Quarterly Fall 2015: A Review
Pom Pom Quarterly has released its Fall 2015 issue. Let's have a look.
Woodland Tales. Pretty and lacy and well shaped. I love the yarn used here.
Maude pullover. This looks rather heavy, unsurprisingly, as it is both cabled and worsted weight, but then sometimes one does need something super warm. The shaping is pretty good, though the sleeve length looks a little awkward to me.
Abram's Bridge cardigan. Love the stitchwork on the back, but the shaping (especially whatever is going on in the front hem and the dropped shoulders) make it look a bit weird and off-kilter.
North Toque. This is a little too afghan-y for me.
Magdelen stole. Definitely a statement wrap.
Oak Crest cap. Intricately detailed and looks good on.
Jean pullover. Very much like this one, which hits that sweet spot of being wearable, flattering, and polished-looking. Excellent cowl neckline shaping on this piece.
Pianissimo scarf. Very decent ribbed scarf.
Karusellen hat. This one's cute and even manages the no mean feat of being a dog hat that an actual adult can wear.
Hitchcock sweater. Not a bad-looking henley, though I would add waist-shaping to the woman's version.
