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.

To see other bloggers that are participating in the 3rd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, check out my google search here, where there is a list of bloggers who have written about colour today.


  1. Yep, that sounds just like you! Look at your stash, you could make an awesome stripy blanket with those!

  2. Oooh, I just love that granny Square. I totally understand your love of red, though recently my little girls have persuaded me of the joys of pink as well!

  3. Brilliant colours, love that granny square


  4. Mmm, peacock/teal blue. That's a favourite of mine, too.

  5. I see some grey!

    I have to say, I think the red and purple love is inherited from me and mum.

    I crocheted yesterday. I will never be as good as you, but my crocheting looks like crocheting.

  6. Bright colors do suit you; you are so cute in that red.

  7. I love red, though I try not to buy red tops, because with black pants it makes you look like you work at Target! LOL

    (and FEET OFF THE SEATS!! omg a pet peeve of mine with PT users :P)

  8. You are right, we do pick our colors the same way. I love your stuff! Rainbow colors are the best.
