So, I'm participating in Knit and Crochet blog week again this year. I had such fun last year finding new blogs, and new readers, so here goes...
Today's prompt is:
Colour is one of our greatest expressions of ourselves when we choose to knit or crochet, so how do you choose what colours you buy and crochet or knit with. Have a look through your stash and see if there is a predominance of one colour. Do the same with your finished projects - do they match? Do you love a rainbow of bright hues, or more subdued tones. How much attention do you pay to the original colour that a garment is knit in when you see a pattern? Tell readers about your love or confusion over colour.
Great first topic *smiles*
I love colour. I actually have mild synesthesia , so the world is already pretty colourful to me. I'm not keen on neons or pastels, but other than that I'm a fan of pretty much all colours. Unlike most people I know, my favourite colour is orange - but you can probably tell that from my blog colourscheme *laughs*
I do tend to go through phases when it comes to what I buy or knit. Right now, almost everything I am working on is grey (I love the soothing sense I get from the colour, or lack of it!) A while back, everything that came off the needles seemed to be blue:
Then I'll go through a green phase, or a purple phase. Thinking about it, I have quite a lot of purple yarn in my stash right now, so I have a feeling that I'll end up overtaken by purple some time soon *laughs*
When it comes to knitting garments, I prefer solid or semi-solid colours. Subtle tones work well for me, so that there is depth to the colour but nothing crazy. I save the crazy colours for my socks, where pooling is welcomed and clashing colours positively encouraged *grins*
See - told you I like orange ;)
I also love playing with colour, and have experimented with dyeing my own yarn...
It's amazing what you can achieve with kool aid and food dye! I want to dye everything I can get my hands on now, but I shall resist for the time being - until I have a need for more crazy sock yarn *grins*
