Pom Pom Quarterly: Issue 47 (Winter 2023)
Pom Pom has always been a celebration of color in knit and crochet form and this issue is no different. They love color so much that often they try and get as much of it into each piece as they can, but for this monochrome-themed issue they wanted to see what could be done with fabrics that used more subtle tonal differences within a single hue, or closely related ones.
In this issue, the designers played with depth, saturation, and brightness; maximum impact with minimum contrast.
In addition to the makes there's an interview with Dana Williams-Johnson who answers eager questions about her PhD dissertation that centers around knitting and representation of Black women in the online crafting community.
There is also a winter-friendly recipe by Fi Churchman.
