Colour Review | 4KCBWDAY4

What are your favourite colours for knitted or crocheted projects? Have a think about what colours you seem to favour when crafting. 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?  Do the colours you have chosen relate to your house animal in any way?

On the subject of colour (rhymes with velour!),
I've been known to be a blowsy bluesy kinda gal:

Yes, I have a tendency toward jewel tones that is well-documented.  But even with all that sapphire peeking through, the saunter down Project Lane [Rav] was surprisingly colorful.


Eagle eyes will notice that the orange in the above collage is still in skein form -- it'll be a shawl later this year, I promise.

The stash is full of rando stuff like that:
orange allergen-packed alpaca...    ribbon yarn, apropos of nothing...
It helps to challenge my creativity, right?

Oh who'm I kidding.  I just want it all.  ALL OF IT, I TELL YOU!

nothing wrong with wanting it all--as long as you leave a little for the rest of us ; )

I think even when we gravitate toward certain colors, we still *WANT ALL OF THEM* every once in a while!

I think some random colours from our usual colour choices is good for creativity.

I could never have a yarn shop, because I'd never want to sell any of it ha ha

Great collages, it's alwayd fun to see everything together like that.

Kirstin Gallagher said...

I agree with you -- the best color is all the colors!

Voie de Vie said...

I want all the yarn, too. In most all colors, except yellow. :)

I am amazed at all the blue. Why don't I use more blue? I'm also a bluesy kinda gal. Things that make you go hmmmm.

Random colors in the stash makes for fun interesting projects. I love seeing the close-ups of your projects. And now after seeing that first collage, I want to knit with more blue.

I have very similar preferences, haha. I need more yellow and orange because it contrasts with blue in a fantastic way.
