PomPom Spring #44



You never know what the day will bring with spring, so it’s the perfect season for layering!

All of the pieces in this issue play with opacity, texture, and  colourwork, layering techniques, tones, and transparency - sometimes all at once! 

Our initial inspiration for this issue came from layering in images such as risographs, shadows, and superimposed photos, which got us thinking about printing and how it works. As a print publication, transferring the words and images we craft so carefully onto paper is part of what we do. 

We’ve also invited two equally awe-inspiring people to model our knits for you this season. Angel Joy Flores and Alicia Roth Weigel are both activists who work towards a more equitable world for the LGBTQIA+ community in Texas and beyond. More than ever, representation of trans and intersex people is vital and we were honoured to work with them.


Issue 44 also includes a celebration of the art of screen printing by Mei Stephens, who muses on the parallels between printing and knitting, and Hannah McGregor’s second contribution to Pom Pom, this time taking on the colour yellow and its cultural history. If you’re looking for a sweet treat, our recipe for bebinca, a layered Goan dessert, will have your mouth watering! 

We anticipate subscriber and pre-ordered copies to arrive with crafters in March 2023. On 16 March, issue 44 will be available to buy in digital-only form, and for sale from our wonderful stockists around the globe.


Join us for our first-ever virtual cast on party! 


Your purchase of the print magazine also includes access to a digital copy, which will be emailed to you on publication day, 16 March 2023. You can also access a digital copy via Ravelry using the download code printed on the inside cover of the magazine from the same date.

A digital-only version will be made available to purchase on 16 March 2023.

Cocoknits Portfolio


Like many knitters, I am mostly digital these days...but there is something so appealing about a good pencil and paper - I don’t think I’ll ever give them up completely.  But how to travel with book, journal, worksheets, magazines, patterns...and maybe also a tablet or cell phone and pencil? I started with the idea of a Japanese travel journal, with the elastic bands to secure books and magazines. Then played around with layers of kraft fabric to create pockets for tablets, patterns, pencil and cell phone. The entire portfolio is washable and you can change out the elastic to personalize the colors. Stylish and organized - what’s not to love?

Neons and Neutrals by Aimée Gille


Neons & Neutrals 

Curated by Aimée Gille


Neons & Neutrals: A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a sequel to Aimée’s first book, the best-selling Worsted. This collection, if possible, is even better and includes 16 patterns from 16 talented designers. It is an eclectic collection of patterns that invites crafters to combine yarn in new and unexpected ways across brands and bases. The designs showcase modern knitting at its best, using a variety of techniques and unique and unexpected color combinations. Most of the patterns are photographed in two different samples – worked in different colors and yarns, giving you ample inspiration for your own versions.


The collection celebrates solidarity and cooperation: to showcase the many talented people in the knitting community, Aimée has put together a collection of not only patterns from designers around the world, but yarns from a variety of producers and dyers. All of them work beautifully together and different sizes and price points have also been taken into account.


Aimée writes: “My goal was to curate a knitwear collection that you’ve never seen before. Neons and Neutrals is a collection full of unexpected colors and textures that hopefully will invite you to knit beyond your comfort zone. I believe anyone can wear any color or texture as long as you believe in the fiber story you are making.”


Aimée’s previous book, Worsted, has sold over 12 000 copies and is available in English, French and Japanese. A Korean version is coming out later this year.
