Color Review 4KCBWDAY4

Colour ReviewWhat 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?

For Day 4 of KCBW, the challenge is to look at color.

I love pinks. Always a pink girl. But I’m fair skinned, with blonde hair and blue eyes, so I know I look better in blues and greens. I love dyeing yarns in blues and greens, almost to the point where they are excessive. 

Yarn though, what colors do I knit and crochet? When it’s for me, my yarn will be in pink, blue, or purple. However, I crochet a lot for craft shows. So the colors of my yarns tend to be quite diverse. I don’t really like pastels, but they tend to be good colors for baby items.

I'm not really a manatee when it comes to colors. Through my word association on Tuesday, I thought of a manatee color being something either in the blue/green range, or more muted tones that would mean comfort.

Lots of pink in the last few months, though I can guarantee you there's at least as many greens, purples, reds, and blues floating around, skeins just waiting to become a project. Though I think I can safely say that I rarely make anything in a solid orange or yellow yarn, simply because I do not like either of those colors on their own. 


  1. Oooh I like your cold sheep hat!

  2. I like orange, but have none. I don't even know how that happens LOL

  3. I think a comfort colour depends on who you talk to. Blue and green may be seen as calming colours, but someone may find bright red calming particularly if they had a favourite blanket which they turned to which was red.
    Colour affects people in different way.


I love knowing that you stopped by!
