Day 4: Colour Review

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?

My favorite colours to work with are bright, variegated and rainbow. I work with them every opportunity that I get. This past year though, the colours I’ve worked with have been chosen by those who placed custom orders with me. Since I’ve had to close my order book (I burned myself out), I’ve been working with the colours that I want to work with.

Examples of orders:

As far as my yarn stash goes, I have just about every colour in worsted weight that there is out there. Most of the cotton I have is bright and vibrant.

As far as correlating to the House of Bees, I think it is. It may be lacking the shiny part, but these colours sure are bright!

  1. Thank you! I don’t know about you, but I can’t be in a bad mood when I’m working with such vibrant colours. Once I’m able to do more dying, that’s my goal for my wool. I want big chunks of rainbow blocks. Now let’s see if I can pull that off LOL
