Take Heart: A Transatlantic Knitting Journey by Fiona Alice


Take Heart: A Transatlantic Knitting Journey by Fiona Alice is the first book published by the excellent Pom Pom Press in London, UK. 

You may recognise Fiona's name from the beautiful patterns she's designed for Pom Pom Quarterly. Pom Pom was thrilled to expand upon her unique design aesthetic, beautiful illustration style, and reflective writing. 

Take Heart traces a path across the Atlantic from Fiona's hometown in Nova Scotia to where she now lives in London, UK. The book was photographed by longtime Pom Pom collaborator Juju Vail, with the incredible Welsh seaside as the backdrop.

Fiona lovingly illustrated each pattern detailing her inspiration behind each one. We believe that handmade objects are ingrained with the stories of those who make them, and nowhere is that more evident than here.

The book features 11 accessory patterns using yarns from locally owned British & Canadian companies, including: 

SweetGeorgia // Handmaiden Fine Yarn // John Arbon Textiles // Illimani // The Uncommon Thread // Kettle Yarn Co // Toft Alpaca // The Border Mill
