Knitting and Crochet Blog Week: Day 1

  3KCBWDAY1  Colour Lovers

Welcome to the Third Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week! This is my first time participating in this spectacular event and I've enjoyed preparing blog entries for it.

Today's Topic: 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.

I looked through my Stash/WIP/FO discovered a lot of soft blues, purples, and pinks:

Dream in Color Some Summer Sky and Peace Fleece Latvian Lavender:

Vodka Gimlet made with Shepherd's Wool Baby Blue
Dark and Stormy made with Cascade 220 Montmartre
Shawl That Jazz  made with Blue Fiber Arts Blue Moonstone
Alexandria Cardigan made with Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3 plyRose

Bulky Shrug made with Araucania Limari in 502
Peasy made with Rowan Felted Tweed in Duck Egg

I also have some reds and browns:

Peace Fleece Lauren's Coral

Perfect Sweater made with Rowan Felted Tweed Pebble

Central Park Hoodie made with Peace Fleece Sheplova Mushroom
Hey Teach made with Brown Sheep Serendipity Tweed Nebraska Wheat
V Neck Down Cardigan made with Berroco Ultra Alapaca Cardinal

This was a fun exercise as I realized that I don't have any greens, yellows or neutrals. Something to consider for future projects!
