Summer is here! Well, even if your climes are not sunny (yet!), we can officially announce the start of planning those heady days relaxing outside with a dreamy WIP to match. Enter Issue 25, dedicated to a summer staple: stripes! Think beach huts, deckchairs, and classic Breton tops, think cool cotton tees and breezy long linen tops. Stay tuned for Ravelry previews on 10th May!
You know we like to mix things up with our covers, from the designs, colours, and models we feature, to our graphic design. Each cover has its own character, while firmly remaining Pom Pom Quarterly; Issue 25 is no exception with its snazzy stripes. However, you might have noticed a different sort of change on the cover too: one that will stay a constant for a good while to come. Where it has said £9.50 for many years, it now says £12.50.
It’s hard to know how to broach this without it sounding like an apology or justification. This isn’t that, but we didn’t want to let it slip by unacknowledged. Obviously, it is something we have thought long and hard about and haven’t done lightly. Without wishing to sound weird, needing to and having the (yarn) balls to raise our price is, in fact, something we are really proud of.
