Take Heart: A Transatlantic Knitting Journey by Fiona Alice.
This lovely book with 11 accessory patterns was the first non-magazine publication from Pom Pom Press. I remember being so excited when this was released and the patterns still entice me a few years down the road!
“You may recognise Fiona’s name from the gorgeous patterns she has designed for Pom Pom Quarterly in the past, and we are thrilled to be able to expand upon her distinctive design aesthetic, beautiful illustration style, and thoughtful writing.
Take Heart traces a path across the Atlantic from Fiona’s hometown in Nova Scotia, to where she now resides in London. The book was photographed by longtime Pom Pom collaborator Juju Vail, with the stunning Welsh seaside as the backdrop.
Each pattern is lovingly illustrated by Fiona, along with heartfelt writing detailing her inspiration behind each one. We believe that handmade objects are imbued with the stories of those who make them, and nowhere is that more evident than here.
