KCBW2012 Day 1 – Color

3rd Annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week

I had not heard of this, but after reading Rock + Purl’s post today, I took a trip over, and thought it sounded like fun! So, in the spirit of Kim Werker’s Rut Race, I’ll try this for the week! Plus one week seems like a smaller bite than the 30 days I did last November.

So with no further ado, 3KCBWDAY1 – Colour Lovers:

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 don’t have to look very deep into my stash to realize I have a fear of branching out with color for me. I tend to stick with greens and purple/burgandies. However, a glance at my project page on ravelry, indicates that my daughter brings out more adventure in the color spectrum.

I did take a knitting with color class about 20 some-odd years ago, where I learned that the more colors in a project the less chance of clashing occurring. I like to play with changing color choices up, but do tend to maintain relatively conservative combinations. Perhaps this year, I should try to shake that up a bit in my own wardrobe.

  1. I think you are right about the more colors, the less clashing. Maybe thats why I have so much love for bright yarns with lots of color.
