Pom Pom Quarterly Spring 2017: A Review
Pom Pom Quarterly has released their Spring 2017 issue. Let's have a look at it, shall we?
Hanabira. Not a bad little crocheted cardi. Another colour scheme would do more for it.
Izumi. Love the leafy lace detailing on this one.
Arrosa. What a lovely shawl. The proportion of lace to plain knit is perfect: it has enough lacework to make it look delicately pretty, and yet not so much that it'll be constantly catching on everything.
Tinea. Like the cable detail and the colour scheme, but I'm not thrilled with the way this one sits.
Astera. What a perfect bag. It could go nearly anywhere, from the beach to the office.
Bombus. I like the bubble stitch in this one, but not the shaping, which has a frumpy look.
Odonata. Quite like this relaxed tunic.
Signal. I don't think I could wear this one without feeling like I should also be wearing oversized shoes and a big red nose.
Melli. This is quite pretty in its way, but cropped and boxy with dropped shoulders is a very difficult shape for most women to carry off.
Sun Rays Quilt. A lovely little piece of work.
