Interweave Knits Fall 2017: Combating Color Bias

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about color bias, specifically about my own color bias. I asked if other knitters were color-biased. The response was (as I expected) polarized: some of you loved the black and white photography because it stripped away color, some of you said that detail was lost, and some of you (like me) just loved the black and white photography because it was beautiful.

Even though the response was split down the middle, the fact still remains that there was an unprecedented amount of feedback. Because many folks—including me—loved the black and white photography, I’m back again with another side-by-side gallery for Interweave Knits Fall 2017, an issue full of colorful garments including several colorwork pieces and a few gray garments thrown in for good measure. To thine own self be true, right?

How do you perceive these garments in the absence of color? Does it cause you to reconsider a piece you disregarded before, or do you just love black and white photography like me?

Let me know!
