A word from Pom Pom about the book:
Curious about the book’s title? Let’s hear from Sachiko and Kiyomi on their title choice: ‘You may be familiar with the English idiom ‘like chalk and cheese’, which is used to compare two things that look similar, but in actuality are nothing alike. The comparison of the moon and turtle has a similar meaning in Japan. Tsuki to SupponSuppon / 月とスッポン (moon and soft-shelled turtle) is an idiom comparing the round shape of the moon to the roundness of the soft-shell turtle. Although they have the same shape, of course they are nothing alike. […] We liked this idiom a lot when we first heard it, as we felt it pretty much summed up how twins are often perceived – looking the same or similar physically, while still being individuals. This collection of designs follows a similar idea.’
Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly magazine that would present knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, Pom Pom also celebrates the joy of making, hopefully without taking it all too seriously!
“Since our kitchen table beginnings, we’ve gone on to feature some of the most well-known and loved independent designers and yarn producers, with some of the less well-known also growing along with us. We are so proud and lucky to be able to say that Pom Pom is now stocked at over 250 locally-owned yarn and craft stores across four continents and 20 countries. At Pom Pom we know that knitters are creative, curious people – so we also include lots of other features we think you’ll enjoy – from cocktail recipes, to dyeing tutorials, to articles about 18th century paper cut artists! Basically anything we think will inspire you. We also take pride in every detail of our magazine, from the typefaces we use right down to the paper we’re printed on – knitters are tactile people after all! We have always been, and continue to be, printed in the United Kingdom.
Pom Pom continues to grow, and we very much value each and everyone of you along with us on the journey! We are so excited about bringing you more thoughtful, beautiful, joyful, educational, and inspirational knitted (and crocheted!) goodness for a long time to come.”
