Blog Week: Day4

4KCBWDAY4 Colour Review  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?”

I’m pretty sure I favor blues and greens when shopping.   Blue is my “neutral” (I don’t do black, really).  It’s also the color I often pick for babies of unknown gender.   Jeans are my main pant choice, so I’m willing to have socks of more exciting colors.

Doing a print-screen was kind of tricky for me and this took several attempts.  I had one version of this where the images from the project page were bigger, but smaller pictures seemed like a slightly better choice so that you could see a wider selection of things.

Looking at this, the blue is apparent, but there’s a healthy amount of “warm” colors too.  I’ve long considered red to be my favorite color, and I know that early yarn buying reflected that (I’m looking at you, especially, huge stash of cherry cotton-ease).  Using up some of that older stash has led to several projects earmarked for donation in shades of red.

Did you learn anything new about your color buying habits or trends?

    Oooh I kind of wish I’d done the challenge like this. I would have liked to have seen what colours I actually use.
    It’s all very interesting.
