Colour Lovers - 3KCBWday1

I've decided to participate in the 3rd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, and today's topic is all about colour.
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 definitely like a variety of colours, and usually go for bright rainbow colours compared to dark neutral ones. I think my love of Attic24 brought me to love rainbow colours in crocheting. Most of my projects are a made with varying patterns of these colours, as I like them to be bright a bold.
Personally I think of all the colours, red will always be my favourite colour...with purple and peacock/teal blue coming in as seconds and thirds. I think red is such a lovely warm vibrant colour, and even through my phases of wearing black clothes I thought red was an awesome colour. It's even the 
colour my hair is most of the time too!
Overall, I think my stash will show you that I am fairly colourful nowadays, even with the odd dark and neutral colours here and there. There aren't any colours that I have aversions to and I am willing to use any colour if it is required in my projects.

I think that summarises my thoughts on colour.

Being Busy

Things are still being busy for me, and I have only had time to focus on my sister's Sunny Stripe blanket.

Most of my week has been spent working or figuring out how my new phone works. I got an Android phone as I was getting fed up with my outdated blackberry. I have instantly fell in love with this new piece of technology I have as it enables me to do so many different things without using a computer!

To end my post I am going to share some of my photos from this week!

Can you tell I love instagram?! It is amazing.

Hope you are all keeping well fellow bloggers.

I have been on night shift for the past two weeks, and I haven't done much crocheting at all. Not enough to be worth sharing photos.

However I have been busy reading on my kindle and you can see this from my Goodreads page! I am also learning to drive! My first lesson was last week, and my instructor took me onto the main road straight away as I already knew how to change gears and use the clutch.
Currently I am doing one lesson a week, every Monday and I find it exciting yet very nerve-racking. I started learning to drive as I have been told several times that because I am in the science industry, a driving license will open many doors/windows for me. My goal is to have my license by the end of 2012, I am determined to have it!
Although my lesson tomorrow has been moved to Tuesday, as I am going to a speech/talk event by my favourite author Jodi Picoult in Glasgow tomorrow evening. I may steal my friend's idea and get her to sign the back of my kindle if she will be signing after the event! So excited!

I am thankful to be on dayshift for the next two weeks, so hopefully I will get back into crocheting as I will have more time for it. So watch out for more photographs of Sunny Stripe (And all those squares I am supposed to be doing!). I may even get to enjoy the sunshine a little bit more as well, since I won't be sleeping lots during it too.

Hope you are all taking care!
