Hi Pomcats! Welcome back to aural knitting space that is the Pomcast! Wind those skeins and dig out your stitch markers and join us for another chat episode.We start this episode with a somewhat detailed description of coffees and beverages and then chat Sophie’s adventures in clay and Lydia’s sewing studio set up. Knitwise, Lydia has been continuing to enjoy her adventures in intarsia, while Sophie has made the ever so cosy and warm Skyhill mitts!It’s been on the horizon for a while, but we are just so excited for Pom Pom Quarterly issue 41!

We’re also giving you some behind the scenes information about our recent sock book shoot! This publication will be similar to Ready Set Raglan, and we were delighted to work with sock aficionado Rachel Coopey on this project.Do you love stationery? We feel there must be an overlap with those that love knitting and those who delight in luxury pens and drawing tools? Well, for Lydia this certainly is the case and is enjoying her new Caran D'Ache Neocolor crayons. And for Sophie, she is reviling in the glamor, drama and fun that is the latest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. And of course, the episode ends with our thoughts on two perhaps lesser known museums, the Shell Museum and the Pencil Museum.Remember you can keep in touch with us and other Pomcast listeners via our Ravelry forum, and you can send us your musings via email at podcast@pompommag.com.

Hi Pomcasts, welcome to the penultimate episode of the year! We’re delighted to be joined by guest interviewer Belinda Johnson, a fellow member of the Pom Pom team who had a chat with sound artist Sam Topley. Before we got to the interview, it was only right that we had a chat with Belinda and introduced her to you lovely listeners. As well as finding out a little more about her role at Pom Pom and her journey through the world of knitting, Belinda mused on the patterns that are currently gracing her needles. These included the currently hibernating Eirys from Ready Set Raglan (just awaiting that final ball of De Rerum Natura Gilliatt!), plus Grainne, which is also from Ready Set Raglan, the delightfully named ‘project cookie monster’! Belinda also lamented the currently frogged Trembita mittens she was working on, but confirms that the pattern is so easy that she’ll be restarting these very soon.It was music to our ears to find out that Sam Topley was going to be a guest on the pomcast! Sam is a sound artist and researcher working with textiles to create handmade electronic musical instruments and interactive sound art work. Her collaborative projects explore ideas in craftivism, using DIY fibre crafting to engage new audiences with experimental music making.
