Morning! I think this will possibly be my favorite topic. Today’s subject is (drumroll) colour!
“What are your favourite colours for knitted or crocheted projects. Have a think about what colours you seem to favour when yarn shopping and crafting.
Only after writing this part of your post should you then actually look to see what colours you have used in your projects. Make a quick tally of what colours you have used in your projects over the past year and compare it to the colours you have written about. Compare this, in turn, to the colours that are most dominant in your yarn stash – do they correlate?
Now think back to your house animal – do the colours you have chosen relate to your animal in anyway – if you are in the house of peacock, for example, are your projects often multicoloured and bright?” – Eskimimi Makes
Hm. When I go shopping, I have a really difficult time picking out the yarn I want to use, color or not. I’m a cheapskate. When I do finally pick up yarn, sometimes it’s because of a vibrant, beautiful color, and other times it’s because of the touch. This is a tough prompt! I don’t really favor one specific color. My yarn ranges from pastels to really bright colors to grays. I suppose it just depends on my mood the day I go shopping or the project I’m shopping for.
Looking at my projects, I don’t think I choose just one type of color. There’s neon with the mermaid dress and the Bosc scarf, warmer colors with the bow necklace and Vite Cowl, dark jewel tones with the Paddington Neck Warmer and the Simple Fingerless Mitts, and a variety of neutrals with the Linen Stitch to the Rescue scarf and the Meret hat. I think the moral of the story is I just love colors, all of them!
I think, in a way, my lack of picking one particular color does relate well with the House of Bees. Like bouncing from shiny project to shiny project, I bounce to whatever color suits me on a particular day for a particular project. I don’t really have one favorite color. Some days, like at the DFW Fiber Fest a couple weeks ago, I just need really bright colors, so I buy the most colourful rovings or yarns I can find. Other days, I want something rich and beautiful and go for jewel tones or grays instead. It just all depends.
What colors do you gravitate more towards for your knitting?
