So why not indulge your ears with over an hour of fun chit-chat, we’re certain you’ll feel the same happiness that you get from casting on a new WIP.

Thanks to Scheepjes for supporting our giveaway this month (read on for how to enter!).
It’s no surprise that we’re feeling pretty darn excited about the release of Issue 25! Stripes are the flavour of the season and we’re discussing our picks of the patterns, which you can see on Ravelry here. Our favourites included Tarmac, Macklin and (pictured below) Judoka.
Cotton and linen fibers are the focus of many of the yarns for Issue 25, and we’re very happy to say that thanks to Scheepjes, we have some summery yarn to giveaway! You could win a garments worth of their Linen Soft, perfect to knit Leiden.
To enter, comment below letting us know your must knit pattern from Issue 25! Competition will close midnight GMT on 10th June 2018 – Good luck!

Speaking of Issue 25, Sophie is working on her Tarmac (in a stripey mix of Quince and Co. Sparrow and BC Garn Alba), plus her pattern productivity has gone through the roof as she’s finished her Boum Tank and Kipper Socks.
Lydia has been busy sewing the Trapeze dress by Merchant and Mills in a block printed cotton (which is also from Merchant and Mills!). Here she is on the Issue 25 shoot being a professional palm leaf arranger.
And her go to quick project is the Simple House Slippers – such an easy project for gifts!
Our international correspondent Meghan Fernandes is reporting for us again, this episode she’s joined by Quince & Co. founder Pam Allen. We’ve been huge fans of Quince’s yarns for many years here at Pom Pom, so you will have certainly seen them appear in many Pom patterns! For Issue 25 you can see their cotton Willet used for Nasreen by Lana Jois. Find out more about Quince & Co. here.
Wool, what does it mean? We at t’mill uncovering the meaning of the phrase ‘cloth eared’. We said, ‘CLOTH EARED’.
Have we mentioned that we’re into stripes? What else could be the theme of this month’s top three but our favourite stripey things?
We’ll see you next month Pomcats! Happy knitting!
