I'm really excited to participate in Knitting and Crocheting Blog Week 2012. This is my first year and I actually did not have any time to prepare any posts at all. I'm taking this day by day.
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.
If you have been following my blog recently, then you know I love color. I love bold saturated colors.
I am so close to being done with my ripple, by the way.
I love these little bright squares of color. I can't wait to arrange them and put them together.
I have yet to find my perfect color in yarn yet. To me it is a deep purple-y pink. I have come close with
but just today, a fellow K&CBW participant posted my ultimate color. It is the last picture in the post. It just so happened to be her ultimate color too!!!
I love purples and pinks.
I also love turquoises and teals and blues. I love saturated colors far more than pale colors.
Yellow and orange have always been scary colors for me, but I'm learning how to work with them.
Choosing a color palatte always depends on my mood. Often, as I've said, they are bright saturated colors. I do have a couple projects where the colors are a bit more subdued and I still love them.
I love having color everywhere. Are you the same? I'm going to go looking for other blog week posts now!
