Wandering Knitters - Oxford Yarn Store
  Wandering knitters!

Hello from Hungary! 

After visiting my son in Budapest I am now heading off to Denmark via Austria and from Linz an overnight train to Hamburg. From there I will travel tomorrow all the way up to the northern tip of Denmark to visit our Isager friends in Tversted.

How wonderful it is to travel in Europe - with knitting! So much to see and do and lots of time to knit!

Knitting on the night train from Zurich to Budapest.

Knitting on a Sunday afternoon on Margaret Island in the River Danube.

Its not all rest and relaxation! Getting ready for a 5k run around Margaret Island with Tim. 


Happy knitting Karen x

Published for sale on Friday 31st May, Pompom Quarterly Issue 29 is now in stock.


 

Summer is here! The nine designs in this issue were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, we have essential summer tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.

We’re also excited that we’ve finally been able to add more pages to the magazine. This means more room for the gorgeous photography you love, an increased font size, and a wider range of sizes for some patterns (with the aim for all patterns in future issues).

Featuring designs by

AMY CHRISTOFFERS // SARI NORDLUND // SORAYA GARCÍA // ISA CATEPILLÁN // CLARE LAKEWOOD // JOSÉE PAQUINE // MARJORIE MARTIN // RACHAEL REESE // STEPHANIE EARP


This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers our questions of creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics we have been re-evaluating.

We also have yarn-free projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, we have a project bag tutorial by artist Arrounna Khounnoraj of Bookhou. She’ll show you how to block-print your own fabric, perfect for creating your own tile-inspired tessellating patterns! Plus Rebecca Lawrence’s recipe for her Maple Bourbon Fudge is an easy way to whip up an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.
