Pom Pom Quarterly - Issue 39 - Winter 2021Pom Pom Publishing
The knit and crochet designs in Issue 39 are inspired by rhythm! Our Winter 2021 collection is packed with patterns which honour echoes, explore semitonal shifts in colour, and include repeating motifs to allow you to get into a stitching groove. We love how the designers have taken our auditory theme and created patterns which highlight the aspects of rhythm we see, such as written musical scores and the visual representation of soundwaves. No matter at what tempo you craft, there?ÇÖs a winter project for you here!
Artist, maker, and stylist Lydia Morrow was the creative director for this issue?ÇÖs photoshoot! We?ÇÖve long admired Lydia?ÇÖs jazzy sense of style, so we?ÇÖre honoured to publish her vision in our pages. After you?ÇÖve found your crafting cadence, enjoy the two articles in Issue 39. In ?ÇÿRhythms of Handiwork?ÇÖ, Felicity (Felix) Ford explores the communal and historical relationship between craft and rhythm, while Claudia Khan writes touchingly about the delicate melody of parenthood, partnership, and time in her article, ?ÇÿA Family Song?ÇÖ. Kiyomi and Sachiko Burgin are the authors of this issue?ÇÖs handmade lip balm tutorial, so you can combat chapped lips brought on by cold weather and even have some non-knitted handmade gifts ready for the festive season.
